Ready Rentals is an online service, so that means that the system is accessible from all around the world for landlords of properties in England, Wales and Scotland. It is RICS regulated and available from £20 per month. So you could be renting in Bournemouth and paying a landlord in Thailand eh? Sounds glam!
