OpenBrix, Home, & TDS unite to digitally upgrade the tenant user experience

Full disclosure Adam Pigott and the team at Openbrix are one of my original and long serving clients in my day job of getting proptechs from MVP to exit (Proptech-PR). But as I run numerous press releases from proptechs from all over the world daily, it is really great to publish this release about the unification of three big power houses in the UK lettings vertical.

Press Release London 2024 OpenBrix has joined forces with the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (TDS) and Home, the new digital ecosystem designed to transform the way we move and manage our homes, to create an immersive, digital tenant experience set to revolutionize the rental experience for millions of tenants in the UK.

This partnership marks a pivotal moment for renters. Bringing together the expertise of the TDS in tenancy protection, with the tenant-centric Rent Smarter features from tlyfe and access to Home’s breadth of services in a single intuitive interface, tenants are poised to experience unprecedented support and convenience throughout their rental journey.

From the moment tenants start looking for their new home, tlyfe ensures they are in the best position with their Rent Ready product. Seamless access to their deposit details ensures renters are aware of how their deposit is protected and how to reclaim it at the end of their tenancy. Integrating Home’s digital services provides tenants with access to essential home setup services, ranging from broadband and storage to cleaning.

They can also receive evaluations of properties against HMO standards and access to 24/7 home cover. Additionally, their home concierge team is always on hand to help with any tenant or landlord needs, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free rental experience.

“This partnership isn’t just about digitalisation—it’s about liberation,” says Adam Pigott, CEO of OpenBrix. “Together with Home and TDS, we’re flipping the script on traditional renting, putting power back in the hands of tenants where it belongs.”

Echoing this sentiment, Matt Spence of Home states, “We’re on a mission to make renting as seamless as possible. By taking a collective tenant-centric approach, we’re not just transforming the rental experience—we’re redefining it.”

For the 2.3 million and growing number of UK renters, the partnership of OpenBrix, Home, and TDS puts them firmly in control of their rental journey. This collaborative effort is set to redefine the rental landscape by providing tenants with a comprehensive suite of digital tools and services that cater to their every need.

The integration of advanced technology ensures that tenants have real-time access to essential information and support, empowering them to make informed decisions with confidence. By prioritizing tenant needs and leveraging cutting-edge digital solutions, this partnership is not only transforming the rental experience but also setting a new standard for tenant satisfaction and control.
