Powered by PAD, the rental club for a new generation of city dwellers, our hackathon will aim to solve some of the biggest and most frustrating problems faced by renters.

There is no denying that the rental process is broken. Whether it’s small annoyances like booking a viewing, finding the right house mates, unreliable WiFi in your flat or major issues like finding a decent & affordable house or dealing with a crappy landlord. Most renters can relate to these issues.

So join us for a Rent Revolution as we bring together 50+ software coders, ux designers, property industry professionals and regular renters to create new solutions that can help us to fix the broken rental process.
