TECH launch: Platform promises to take hassle out of gas, electricity and EPC inspections

News at Town and Country Property Sales | 12/05/2021


New online platform Symple promises to take the hassle out of arranging property certifications and inspections.

The system guarantees that landlords’ inspections always get done on time by liaising directly with registered service providers who can manage these jobs on the platform.

Landlords upload their property details and the last date of inspection and it reminds them when a property certificate is up for renewal.

They can renew a property certificate online and Symple arranges for the inspection to be carried out by a local provider, so landlords don’t have to worry about finding and chasing tradespeople to do the job.

All providers and energy assessors must be accredited and are vetted before they can accept work.

Symple’s system – at symple.co.uk – also handles the delivery of all certifications and ensures landlords receive them ahead of the due date. Landlord registration is free and covers single or multiple properties.

Founder Simon Dresdner (pictured) says he knew there had to be an easier way for landlords to book their gas safety, electrical installation and energy performance inspections and an easier way to never forget when they’re due.

“That’s when the idea for Symple was born,” he adds. “We want to help take a few of those worries away and make life easier for our users. All they need to do is confirm their order and we’ll do the rest.

“That includes ensuring the work is carried out on time, as arranged. We guarantee certificates will be in their inbox by the due date or they’ll receive it for free.”
