Benham and Reeves Residential Lettings is doing its bit for the environment with the launch of its new online accounts system which, as Finance Director, Vidhur Mehra explains, will dramatically reduce the amount of paper the company generates and also enhance the accounts service provided to clients

“We’ve been developing the new online system over the last few months,” explains Vidhur. “For clients, the main advantage will be that they’ll be able to access their statements securely online whenever they want from the comfort of their home or office. They’ll be able to see real-time reports of rental payments received as well as an instant summary of expenses incurred in the management of their property. We’ll shortly be emailing copies of invoices too so that all information is issued quickly and conveniently – this will be particularly useful for our many overseas clients. Useful information such as reports of tenants’ arrears and grouped statement reports is also available.” “From January 2010 we are planning to stop issuing paper statements. We hope that most will appreciate the benefits of the new system.”

“Also new is our text messaging service – clients can now sign up to receive a text alert as soon as a payment goes into their account. Of course, the main benefit will be that clients will be able to have instant access to financial information about their account at their fingertips. We can provide information much faster and we think that clients will find the service really convenient – a great advantage when it comes to managing their lettings business. But we also hope that by reduce the company’s impact on the environment.”

To register for the new service please send an e-mail from your registered e-mail address to landlordlogin@brlets.co.uk with your name and property address and we’ll issue you with a user name and password. Once on-line you can register for the new text messaging service.

• Receive information immediately rather than wait for the information in the post
