This month, PayProp South Africa again held its annual PayProp Academy roadshow, bringing the latest rental industry insights to more than 400 property professionals in Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and Somerset West.

The speaker list included PayProp CEO Jan Davel, who gave a talk on PayProp’s origins, growth and unique value proposition; Head of Customer Acquisition Chantelle Nieuwendyk, who shared rental administration best practices; and General Manager of PayProp Capital, Johette Smuts, who unveiled the results of our recent State of the Rental Industry survey and gave a sneak peek at the upcoming Rental Index.

They were joined by two outside experts: Johan de Bod of Koegelenberg Attorneys, our South African partner on PayProp’s Letter of Demand feature, walked attendees through the eviction process. And Cilna Steyn of SSLR Incorporated held a valuable talk on the legal obligations of landlords and tenants.

Events like the PayProp Academy help to promote a better informed and more professional rental industry – and cement our reputation as industry experts and leaders in our field.
