Community-driven eMagazine and Social Media Portal Rental House Reviews launched in Indian market

In the month of November 2015 we witnessed the entry of another strategic player in the Indian Real Estate segment. The company OneWay has launched it’s yet another venture named targeting the key cities across India. To add to the surprise, the grand launch of their portal for the Indian public is uniquely eyed to set a standard to the unorganized Indian house rental industry.
In the last 20 years, India’s urban population has become more migratory than ever before. Urban centres like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Chennai et al attract large numbers of professionals and students and as a result there’s a large floating population of tenants in these cities. Leasing out houses and flats is big business in these cities and rents have skyrocketed in the past few years. This also means that the number of tenant-landlord disputes has also risen.
A few issues that many tenants face in our country India are;
Security deposit refund / Rent hikes / Privacy / Repairs and Maintenance / Bachelors / Annoying neighbors / Location safety / Eviction / Notice period
Finding a place you like, signing in the rental agreement and moving in all will seem to be easy, but the reality is more complex. Most of the owners get so possessive towards their property and passes awful instructions where the tenants find annoying. As many are feeling house hunting is a daunting task including issues.
So where does this leads currently?
The key is to make sure that you know more about the landlord’s credentials and to have a first hand report from none other than the previous tenant.
In a country where majority who are concerned with quality and peace of mind take importance on the reviews whether it be the travel industry or food or movie or gadget industry, serves as an online community for sharing reviews about rental houses. The reviews found are the real time experiences of individual tenants current or past experience of renting a House/P.G./Service Apartment. These reviews will be of help to other tenants who are planning to rent the same house. One could search for house/owner reviews, when planning to rent a house.
