We worked with Housing Rights, a Northern Ireland housing and homelessness prevention charity based in Belfast, to develop a simple, mobile first web platform to help private renters stay informed / safe during their rental tenure. Information is king and Smart Renter was designed to reduce buzzword heavy advice to bitesize,easillyeasily ingested chunks. The platform also provides a suite of tools, such as a rent calculator, an inventory log and a pro-forma letter generator to create a formal dialogue between Renters and Landlords that could also assist for example in good practice and even dispute resolution.
* Smart Renter has been developed via funding from the Techies in Residence Scheme as part of the former Building Change Trust and their Social Innovation programme. Further development is ongoing with new funding being sought to further develop the platform.
“We have been very impressed with Zoocreative throughout this project. They have continually demonstrated the highest levels of creative and technical know-how and delivered our project on time and within budget.”
