HomeLet, located on Edgewest Way, welcomed the 11 new employees earlier this month as its new Lincoln-based Legal and Claims department. This is a brand new team within HomeLet’s Hestia House, who will now work alongside the company’s insurance team to process claims made by its Rent Guarantee customers.
They join the 270-strong HomeLet team, who are soon to celebrate the one year anniversary of their relocation to Hestia House. The latest move is part of an overall restructure of HomeLet’s parent company, Barbon, that recently sold its property and commercial businesses to focus on its lettings industry suppliers, HomeLet, Rentshield and Letsure. Hestia House is now the head office of all three.
Gary Abraham, HomeLet’s Sales and Marketing Director, said: “The employment of our Legal and Claims team is a really encouraging move that means all HomeLet teams are now working from Hestia House. The new Lincoln-based department, combined with overall improvements to how people make a claim, means our customer process is much more efficient – including for those located in Lincolnshire.
“As one of the largest employers in Lincoln, we’re proud to provide continued job opportunities in the region and believe it’s really important to recruit local people – therefore welcoming the new Legal and Claims department to Hestia House is also positive for our local infrastructure. Our new employees are a great addition to our already committed teams, and I wish them all the best in their new roles.”
HomeLet’s Rent Guarantee products aim to protect a landlord’s rental income if a tenant fails to pay their rent. These are offered in addition to the company’s tenant referencing service and specialist insurance for tenants and landlords.
