Student house reviews website launches with national plans

A new website has launched to let students post honest reviews about their houses and for landlords to showcase their properties year-round.

Launched in Cardiff, moove aims to give students candid information before they sign a lease and is the latest in a long line of websites that let tenants write online reviews about their landlords, but which often fail to gain traction or reviews.

will also launch in Bristol, Bath, Swansea and Exeter in September, with plans for a staggered roll-out across the UK early next year.

In order to review a property, students using moove need an email from one of the universities in Cardiff to post – which is completely anonymous.

Landlords can respond to reviews and for those who’ve received more negative comments, ratings on a property can climb over a period of time.

DIY landlords

Founder Seb Walker (left) says it supports the growing number of ‘do it yourself’ landlords who no longer rely on letting agents to find tenants and manage their properties. 

He reckons landlords using to market their properties will get good leads as it’s directly targeted at students; year-round marketing also helps students find the best properties before they’re available to let on traditional platforms. Landlords will eventually be able to then streamline the tenant onboarding or tenancy signing process.

He tells LandlordZONE: “We’ve so far had a strong reception from landlords in Cardiff, strong interest in other regions of the UK and are discussing with a number of groups and consortiums representing landlords to ensure we continue to build something that works symbiotically and supports the work that landlords do. 

“We encourage tenants to leave positive reviews and comments and our marketing campaigns are targeted to ensure we’re not creating a platform purely riddled with negativity.”

Labour seeks MPs support for specific offence of ‘sex for rent’

Labour seeks MPs support for specific offence of ‘sex for rent’

Labour has called on parliament to back its new plans to make Landlords asking for ‘sex in lieu of rent’ a specific offence.

The proposal, which was first published within the party’s Green Paper called ‘Ending Violence Against Women and Girls’, calls for the creation of a specific offence of using a landlord-tenant relationship to solicit prostitution. The idea is to better enable the police and courts to tackle this kind of sexual offending.

In 2019 the Crown Prosecution Services drafted new guidance for police and prosecutors to help them deal with sex-for-rent cases, but Labour says this does not go far enough.

An estimated 30,000 women have propositioned through online ads on social media and classified listing platforms and even property portals to provide sex in lieu of rent, and it has taken until January this year to secure a court case.

Sexual services

, 52, is accused of asking women to send him photos of themselves wearing bikinis and to provide sexual services in exchange for a room.

He is facing two counts of inciting prostitution for gain and one count of controlling prostitution for gain. He pleaded not guilty at a hearing in February.

During a debate calling on the government to do more about sexual harassment, sexual assault and domestic violence, Shadow Secretary of State for Justice David Lammy accused the government of ‘dithering’ and among the many proposals he proffered, this includes stronger action against landlords who advertise ‘sex for rent’ arrangements.

“Frankly, while the Government dither – and we have been surprised on the Labour Benches by the dither – Labour has had to step in,” he said.

“Today, we ask Members of Parliament from all parties to back our plans to do a few things.”
