Looking back on the year
In March 2020, the UK entered its first lockdown, as the government attempted to keep people indoors to stop the spread of COVID-19. It has now been over a year since the UK’s first lockdown, and the country is preparing to come out of its third national lockdown. Landlords, agents and tenants have had to adapt to unprecedented changes in the property industry. The pandemic has seen a rise in remote working, which has resulted in property owners turning to property management software and other technology to limit in person interactions. We look at what has changed as a result of the pandemic, as well as what the future may hold as restrictions ease. We discuss key market statistics, as well as how property management software has been an invaluable tool for landlords operating during the pandemic.
