AML Check Screenshot

Our instant AML Check allow you to verify the identity of an individual and help you comply with the latest Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations.

The report includes checks across many different sources which makes it more thorough than manual ID checking.

Our AML Checks are sourced directly from Equifax and were developed with the guidance of the Joint Money Laundering Steering Group (JMLSG).

You can find out more, see a video and example reports in the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Checks panel on the Sales page.

Most Requested Features Update

We have updated the system with the following new features which were high up the list of feature requests:

  1. You can now switch a property from a Sale to a Let (and vice versa) from the Property Summary page. When you switch a property, it will be taken off the market so that you can make all the necessary changes and then put it back on the market when you are ready
  2. Properties can be archived and restored from the Property Summary page. Archiving a property will automatically take it off the market and archived properties will no longer appear in property lists
  3. You can now find a list of archived properties or customers by using the search box at the top of Domus. Run a search as normal, and then when the results appear there is now a radio button that allows you to search for only Archived or only Active customers/properties.
  4. Photos can now be reordered using drag and drop - click on the Reorder button in the Property Images tab
  5. We have increased the session timeout (automatic signout) from 60 to 120 minutes

Please add your comment in the Community forum if you have any feedback about this update.

Bring Your Tenant Referencing In-house

Tenancy Application Screenshot

The government has announced that they will be banning letting agents from charging fees to tenants.

It's time to think about how to make your business more profitable.

For example, why pay a referencing firm to reference your tenants when you can do it all in-house? We have recently released a number of features to help you do this including Tenancy Applications, Credit Reports and Identity Checks.

Tenancy Applications

Tenancy Applications allow you to assess the tenants in one simple view (see the screenshot above) which includes employment details, rent affordability and a credit report summary for each tenant.

You can easily manage your pending and completed applications by using the Applications list which you can find under the Letting tab.

Tenant Credit Report and Identity Check

Our Credit Reports and Identity Checks cost just 6.00, a huge saving on outsourced referencing companies. They allow you to check a tenant's credit history and validate their identity in seconds.

The reports include:

  • Credit Score
  • Identity and Residency Checks
  • Electoral Roll Checks
  • Alerts, Aliases and Financial Associates
  • Bankruptcy and Insolvency Checks
  • County Court Judgements
  • Checks on Previous Addresses

The data is sourced directly from the credit agency Equifax so you know you can trust it.

It's easy to start using these features straightaway, just look for Applications and Tenant References under the Letting tab.

Verify Your Customers in Seconds

We have just released several new features to allow you to quickly and conveniently verify your customers.

Enquiries Screenshot

We have updated the system with new Enquiries features. An enquiry is automatically added for new website registrations and Rightmove email leads (if you have the Rightmove real time feed set up).

You can see the enquiries on the home page and in a new Enquiries list. For each enquiry you can:

  • View the enquiry
  • Add a viewing
  • Edit the customer (for example so you can assign it to a user)
  • Mark the enquiry as Complete or Incomplete

It's a great time saving feature, especially if you get a lot of leads from Rightmove.

If you'd like to setup the Rightmove Realtime feed for your office, please email us at support@domus.net. Unlike many of our competitors, it's included in your subscription so there's no extra fee to pay.

Rightmove Real Time Datafeed

We have updated the system with the following changes:

  • We have implemented the Rightmove Real Time datafeed which allows you to update your property data on Rightmove in real time. We are looking to test this with a few customers to start off with, so please let us know if you are interested
  • We've added a new Support page and best practice articles about residential sales, residential lettings and property management written by experts in the field
  • In Domus Pro, the payment dates shown in a Landlord Statement are now the date you set when the payment was entered, rather than the date they were entered on the system
  • When entering a date manually on an Event or Property Sale edit page, the year must now be 4 digits long.

Please add a comment in the Forum if you have any feedback about this update.

System Release Notes

We have updated the system with the following changes:

  • Event Notifications can now be sent to either the Applicant and/or the Vendor/Landlord
  • Property Sales list and Property Sale Summary page have a progress indicator of how far along the sale is
  • Property Sales that have Fallen Through or Completed can now be reopened
  • When a Property Sale is marked as Completed, the associated Offer is updated to 'Contracts Exchanged'
  • When an Offer is set to Accepted when you first add it to Domus, a Property Sale entry will be automatically created
  • You can no longer use [ or ] in a customer name or any part of an address as this affects document generation within the system

Please add a comment in the Forum if you have any feedback about this update.
