Zoopla-owned Proptech platform Yourkeys has launched what it calls a first-of-its-kind sales progression service for new-build shared ownership properties.
It works like this. A ‘compliance gateway’ can be switched on when selling a shared ownership plot, triggering a named compliance officer to be responsible for the development.
The officer will see a snapshot of the transaction, purchaser details and all reservation documentation provided or generated throughout the sales process.
This feature is only visible to the housebuilder and, claims Yourkeys, reduces the administrative burden often associated with shared ownership properties.
Riccardo Iannucci-Dawson, managing director of Yourkeys, says: "The improvement which will be revolutionary for housebuilders when it comes to shared ownership, creating a digital, streamlined and transparent process for all parties involved. Its launch means Yourkeys now supports the two most popular government schemes on our platform, Help to Buy and shared ownership, with a tailored experience for each type of sale.”
Yourkeys was acquired by Zoopla in April this year.
Since the acquisition, the companies say that they have been working together focusing on providing better transaction experiences for both buyers and sellers of new-build homes using a real-time reservation-to-completion software platform.
