About Alquira

Alquira is the new housing rental platform that comes to transform the relationship between tenants and landlords as we know it.This platform that combines services throughout the whole life journey of a rental process aims to bring peace of mind to both; tenants and landlords.

Our intention is to create a community of the best tenants and landlords that believe in transparency. This way tenants can have profitability with zero rental bails or deposits and saving methods to recover part of the rental and landlords can obtain efficiency and profitability with an all-in-one digital toolkit to professionally manage their properties.

How do we make it happen?
Alquira introduces a seamless functionality; a collaborative passport, that tracks the good behaviour of tenants and landlords and scores the best alternative so users can choose the option that best suits their needs. All of this with the purpose of making the whole housing search and rental process smooth and effective.

What's in it for landlords?
Alquira covers from the publication until the day that a tenant leaves the house. Includes classified ad portals publication, price advisory, calendar management, documentation requirements, contract formalization, rent default insurance, home repairs, legal issues, income tax return and cleaning for the home fine tuning for the next rental period.

What's in it for tenants?
Tenants can access a zero initial payment of the rental bail and deposits and also to short-mid term saving formulas for some part of the rental. In addition, Alquira mediates in repair conflicts between landlord and tenant, solving any issue and offering a wide range of services that will make the tenant's life much more comfortable around the household like cleaning, furniture, personal trainer, physical therapist, beauty sessions and so on.

Alquira is a new venture founded by Innomads (Grupo Forcadell, Anzizu, Arnal, Bourgeois, Amat, Masifil) and Byld, a corporate venture builder that designs, validates and launches new ventures with corporations.
