AN ONLINE platform has been launched to offer users easy access to different parts of the property industry.

The Landsite was devised by Bournemouth property investor and developer Ramsey Assal, who had been frustrated when tracking down land for development and finding reliable professionals.

The site aims to collect information from the professional property sector and centralise it in a digital ‘hub’ that is available to anyone.

Landlords, tenants, buyers, other property professionals and independent users can use it to access services, property, news and analytics.

Mr Assal, who has 30 years’ experience in the sector, said: “My vision has been to connect the various sectors of the property industry into one easy to access hub – forming a community of professionals and their businesses, focused entirely on the professional property sector.

“Landlords, property professionals and commercial organisations can rent, sell or buy land and commercial property, promote their professional services and businesses and/or source information and data from a central point.”

The Landsite has been developed over eight months with a six-figure investment behind it.

Mr Assal said it would solve the problem of “clutter and fragmentation” in the sector by organising information in a universally accessible, single location. The site offers free accounts but charges for listing profiles or property.

“Having gone through a comprehensive research phase to investigate what land and property professionals are looking for, we have developed a functional and intuitive platform, which we believe will clear a path through the jungle of the land and commercial property world,” said Mr Assal.

“The Landsite supports and connects the sub-systems of the UK’s professional property industry and offers landlords, tenants, buyers, professional services, property related businesses and independent users access via digital channels to stock, data and business services.”

A second phase, which is at early development stage, will enable registered users to connect, network and converse in a forum, with communication features such as instant messaging planned.

Mr Assal says the concept has captured the attention of overseas investors keen to invest in UK land and commercial property but who are restricted by the logistics of managing the process from abroad.
