Essential Tools All Landlords Need To Use

As a landlord you have the opportunity to make a wonderful income for yourself in a passive way. If you are new to being a landlord this summer, there are a lot of things you need to think about and get to grips with. Today we want to try and help you get to grips with your landlord work with some of the best tools you can utilise for your job.


Mobile Landlord

The first tool you can use as a landlord is called Mobile Landlord, and it helps you with the data aspects of your job. When managing more than one property, things can get a little confusing and you may be overrun with data. This app allows you to make a separate profile for each and every property, including all of the finance and expenditure details. You can also think about the way you store data by reading this article https://setapp.com/how-to/transfer-files-between-android-and-mac to help you store data in one place and effectively transfer it from place to place when you need it.


This tool is one which is often used to undercut pricey letting agencies to save you money when performing background checks on potential tenants. Carrying out security checks of tenants can be a big job and it is important for you to make sure that they are trustworthy and that you won’t be ripped off. You can even use this app to tap into reviews which people have written about you.

Landlord Property Buddy

Every tool is made to make the landlord’s life easier, and this one is no exception. This app is something which is handy for landlords because it allows you to track everything about your tenants including rent due and paid, to ensure that you stay on top of your work.

Stamp Duty Calculator

When buying a home to rent out to tenants, you have to go through the full buying process of the home yourself, and this can be tricky for several reasons. One of the most tricky sums to do when buying a home is stamp duty as this depends on the value of the home as well as other factors. This app will allow you to calculate it within seconds and it will make the decision making process easier for you.


Pad is a revolutionary app which makes the whole rental process for both the landlord and the tenant. It offers a fully mobile rental experience which allows people to conduct the whole process from start to finish in one place. This can be the best app you decide to use for your business.


Signing up with an application such as Rightmove can help you rent out your houses and flats much quicker. Rightmove allows you to market your business to many more people and this should speed up the rental process and also allow you to see market trends and how prices are changing in the local area, allowing you to compete.

  1. This would be a great addition to my uncle who majors in estate management. Though he owns most of the buildings, he often complains about how stressful the process of taking people around to check apartments before being able to secure one is. I just decided to look up some helpful tools that may help him out and as such, I came across this post. This would be just perfect for him. Thanks

  2. Hi Lynne,

    Thanks for the post, I have a few questions, hope you can help :

    1. Where can I find “Pad”, I tried to google it but couldn’t find it

    2. Would any of your recommendations apply out of the UK?

    3. What do you think about the “ManageCasa” app?

    4. Do you have any app recommendations to help find contractors for our properties?
