A new option for people wanting to rent a home is to be launched by the co-founder of Yotel.Gerard Green’s private rental site called Society will provide new apartments that treat tenants more like hotel guests, with an app that speeds up the whole rental process, allowing new tenants to move into a new home within 48 hours.That’s an unusually speedy process, but Gerard says the lettings business needs to catch up with others sectors that have experienced a digital revolution.“To find an apartment there is a lengthy process where you have to send your passport and various other forms of ID, pay different fees to different people before you are moved into an apartment block – and then you never hear from them again.”He plans to build space saving apartment homes with raisable beds, sinkable dining tables and foldaway kitchens. He plans to build the first homes in the New Islington area of Manchester; the application has been refused by Manchester City Council where one councillor apparently called the designs “stupid” adding that it should “yo yo back to London where it belongs,” but it will be discussed again at the September committee meeting.Jack Spurrier, MD at Yo! Homes said, A lot of issues raised were not to do with planning policy but were personal opinion, however we will be reviewing parts of the scheme and are hopeful that it will be approved at the next meeting on 22nd September.new rental scheme build-to-rent Yo!

Home » News » Agencies & People » Judges reject Gascoigne Halman appeal in OnTheMarket competition case previous nextAgencies & PeopleJudges reject Gascoigne Halman appeal in OnTheMarket competition caseConnells-owned estate agency has ultimately failed in its expensive attempt to overthrow the July 2017 Competition Appeal Tribunal judgement.Nigel Lewis24th January 201904,522 Views The Court of Appeal has today dismissed Connell-owned estate agency Gascoigne Halman’s challenge to the original Competition Appeal Tribunal adjudication in July last year.That found that Agents’ Mutual, which since the court case has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of OnTheMarket plc, was entirely legal in its pursuit of a then strictly enforced ‘one other portal rule’ which has since been dropped, and also its exclusion of online-only and hybrid agents and its listings’ ‘exclusivity’.Following a hearing in November, the Court of Appeal has today issued a judgement in favour of Agents’ Mutual with regard to all the competition issues in its proceedings against Gascoigne Halman.Breach of contract“As the major part of its defence against our claim of breach of contract, Gascoigne Halman, led by its parent Connells Group and with funding from Zoopla, had alleged that Agents’ Mutual’s contract with them was void for illegality on competition law grounds,” a statement from OTM says.“Following a 10-day hearing, the Competition Appeal Tribunal issued a unanimous judgment in July 2017 which rejected those arguments and supported the view consistently held by the Board of Agents’ Mutual and OnTheMarket that the Company’s strategy for entry to the portals market has been pro-competitive and that the Company has operated within the law.“The Court of Appeal has today unanimously and comprehensively dismissed the appeal by Gascoigne Halman of the Tribunal’s findings.”The legal wrangling isn’t quite over, though. There are several residual non-competition issues relating to OTM’s claim that ‘remain to be resolved’ and that are due to go through the court process later this year.Connells commentDavid Livesey, Connells Group CEO, says: “Firstly, it is important to recognise that this litigation is being brought against Gascoigne Halman/Connells Group by OnTheMarket. We are merely defending our business from the action, which is costing both sides time and money which could be put to much better use.“I am surprised and disappointed that the Appeal Court has upheld the view of the Competition Appeals Tribunal that the “One Other Portal” rule is not anti-competitive when, in my view, it is.“Having dealt with the competition issues in the Gold Member contract, we now move to the next stage of robustly defending ourselves against this pointless litigation from OTM and, as such, there will be no further comment.” Gascoigne Halman OnTheMarket Agents’ Mutual Zoopla January 24, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

J7Agents hoping for a post-General Election ‘Boris bounce’ should be reassured by the latest results from central London estate agency Chestertons, which has reported an ‘unprecedented’ surge in activity following the New Year.It may only be 22 working days since the Conservative won the election with an increased majority, and ten since the beginning of the year, but estate agency Chestertons says sales enquiries have increased by 76%, instructions by 20%, new buyer registrations by 15% and offers received by 43.7%.The company’s CEO Guy Gittins (below) claims this sharp increase in buyer and seller activity is due to pent-up demand being released.“We’re hopeful that this will result in more properties coming on to the market over the coming months, as the London market is dramatically under-supplied,” he says.“As agents, we’re in a privileged position as we get to see data that is not readily available to the general public and allows us to get an early indication on what is happening in the market right now.“For example, looking at the number of new applicants we are registering gives us a good indication of market sentiment and analysing the number of offers those prospective buyers are making show us their level of motivation.”Chestertons’ results reflects yesterday’s RICS housing report, which also recorded a 17% increase in buyer enquiries, more agreed sales including a 22% increase in London.“Sales expectations for the next three months are also positive, for the third month running, with 31% of respondents anticipating transactions will rise,” said RICS Chief Economist Simon Rubinsohn.Read more about the housing market. guy gittins RICS Simon Rubinsohn Chestertons January 17, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
