● Kamma to boost Purplebricks’ letting service with a best-in-class tech solution for agents and landlords helping them stay up-to-date with changing regulations and guaranteeing compliance
● Partnership highlights the growing role of PropTech in delivering differentiation and growth for lettings agencies
July 21, 2021 – Geospatial technology firm Kamma has partnered with the lettings division of tech-led estate agent Purplebricks. The partnership will give the Purplebricks team full access to Kamma’s 24/7 compliance monitoring tool, delivering additional benefits to landlords.
With more regulation hitting the private rented sector, in the form of property licensing schemes and ever-tightening domestic Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES), Kamma’s technology removes the complexity from property compliance.
A complex web of local laws and regulations means landlords risk fines of up to £30,000 for getting it wrong. Whilst the traditional approach to property compliance is both time-consuming and expensive, Kamma’s tools can be accessed 24/7 from any location. The software continually tracks local laws and regulations, monitoring the compliance status of every property in the country. Providing access to Kamma’s technology means landlords using Purplebricks will be able to minimise risk and maintain standards with real-time compliance requirements and status for any property in their portfolio.
Kamma CEO, Orla Shields, says
“Purplebricks is a market leader in the estate agency market and Kamma is proud to support their lettings service. Purplebricks customers will now be able to get immediate access to the information they need, supporting compliance and reducing risk of fines.”
Helen Ogden, Head of Lettings at Purplebricks, comments, “Our aim is to use technology to give our customers the best possible service – and this new relationship with Kamma will mean we can make compliance easier for landlords, saving them both time and money.”

Property licensing continues to be a massive pain point for landlords and property managers, maybe unsurprisingly so considering the uncertainty around who needs a licence, and who is responsible for obtaining it. What properties need a licence? Many people still believe licensing only applies to large HMOs such as student house-shares, but this is not […]Read more
