Landlord software

Hi, I just want to ask other landlords what software they are using to manage their portfolio.i have never used a computer and generally use WhatsApp to communicate with tenants. My council is introducing selective licencing so I will probably need to be more organized and prove it. I have seen “free” software such as Octoproperty … is this truly “free”. Can anyone help? Many thanks in advance.

Word, Excel and Outlook does everything I need. Specialist landlord software needs a lot of ‘feeding’ to stay useful.

If Octoproperty is entirely free, is your data the product used to turn a profit and pay costs ?


Hi Paul, Excel, Word and a web mail system like Outlook or Gmail will be all you need. If you have never used a computer you should try and find a beginners course. Ask at your library or council offices if they are still running them.

I’ve only just discovered it, so can’t tell you how good it is, but appears to be affordable landlord software if you’re like me & do it all on your phone. I’m still in their free trial period, and haven’t used it with a tenant yet, but it looks & feels good so far.
