How to offer an all-inclusive service to your tenants

Ever wonder how travel companies offer all-inclusive holidays at such fantastic prices?

You get your flight, accommodation, transfers, and all of the food and drink you could ever eat included in the price, and rarely pay more than £600 for a week in the Spanish sun.

At Billing Better, we’ve taken a leaf out of the all-inclusive concept to offer a service modern renters love. Granted, we don’t offer bottomless chicken nuggets or watered-down Sangria, but we do cover every household bill, including their gas, electricity, broadband, water, and TV package, for one monthly price. Perfect for house shares, students, and professionals.

Estate agents like Bunked, Preston Baker, and Urban Shared are already using Billing Better to offer their tenants an “all-inclusive” service - and it’s not only helping tenants budget better and live their best lives, but it unlocks a new revenue stream for lettings firms like yours.

What with house buyers holding their horses until the dust settles on Brexit, and this year’s Letting Agent Fee Ban making it harder to turn a profit, we think you’ll love working with us.

The all-inclusive option

You could choose to rent homes with rent and bills included as standard, an all-inclusive package from day one. You’ll handle the rent, we’ll handle the bills, and a dedicated Billing Better account manager will be on hand to communicate with the tenants throughout their tenancy, so you don’t have to worry about the electricity cutting off at three in the morning. Opt for this, and you’ll earn £50 per property, per month - that’s £600 per property, per year!

The referral option

Alternatively, you might want to refer tenants to Billing Better - great if you’ve got lots of properties home to multiple occupants or students. Encourage them to sign up, and they’ll pay one monthly amount for their rent and another for their bills. To give you a helping hand, we’ll provide you with a branded website so your tenants can sign up in minutes. For this, you’ll earn £20 per property per month or £240 per property per year - it quickly adds up.

Why partner with Billing Better?

There are so many reasons why landlords and lettings agents are turning to Billing Better… 

  • Letting Agent Fee Ban: Landlords and lettings agents can earn up to £600 per property per year, far more than the revenue lost from the tenant fee ban.  
  • Number-one-rated provider: We’re proud to have been rated as the number one bills package provider on Trustpilot - a big tick for tenants and for landlords.
  • Branded to you: When lettings agents sign up to work with Billing Better, we’ll build you a custom-branded website so your tenants can join our “all-inclusive” service.
  • Void period bills: We make it easier for landlords, paying the energy bills within void periods to ensure your property is ready for future tenants. Hassle-free on your side.
  • We deal with tenants: We’re proud to offer direct communication with tenants via WhatsApp for support on their bills, meaning fewer inbound calls for you to deal with.
