ila's Sherborne Place Build to Rent development. The operator has chosen Yardi's Residential Suite as its preferred Build to Rent management and solutions platform.

Build to Rent operator ila (I Live Around) has chosen Yardi’s residential suite to help drive its new Build to Rent community with a branded marketing website and mobile app. The collaboration will help make the leasing system more effective and eliminate inefficiencies for ila.

Yardi’s property management and accounting platform aims to support the operator by streamlining Build to Rent processes and enhance customer service through a branded mobile app that is powered through RentCafe®. 

“After assessing several providers, we found that Yardi stood out as the most suitable option, offering everything we required. The end-to-end platform will help us showcase our properties, save time on manual tasks and allow us to focus on our residents and providing a great tenant experience.”

Steven McCarthy, Managing Director, ila

With improved operational tools, ila can approach move-ins more efficiently, ease pressure on staff regarding application periods and lease-up properties faster.

The solution will also help to simplify maintenance and inspection procedures, automate payment processes, as well as unify financial accounting and reporting.

“We’re delighted to work with ila and help with its growth plan within the UK Build to Rent market. Our technology is designed for real estate and will help ila streamline operations and provide scalability for the company as it continues to grow within the UK.”
