Relocations from outside the UK – We have relocated numerous individuals, families and ex-pats to London from abroad, giving us a great deal of experience and a safe pair of hands to handle relocations. Additionally, we can assist with furniture rental, moving and storage, visa and immigration, setting up utilities, and financial, tax and legal advice.
Regional and multinational corporates – We understand how important it is for businesses’ employees to move and acclimate into their new London residency as quickly as possible so their role in your business continues without a hitch. We have experience moving individual and multiple employees simultaneously to London for temporary or long-term accommodation from within or outside the UK.

Students – Finding a suitable property that fits your criteria as a student can be challenging. We can help you plan ahead of your study start date, find rentals that match your needs, review the referencing process, and secure the most suitable environment that nurtures your best potential with minimal stress.
Pet owners – We know pets and their owners are inseparable, and the challenges of finding a pet-friendly rental property can be disheartening. In general, building policies have become stricter, leading to many buildings not permitting pets; and landlords, deterred by higher insurance requirements for accommodating pets, tend to prioritise tenants without pets. With limited pet-friendly rentals available, it’s worthwhile to have expert assistance to navigate the competitive pet-friendly rental market.

How our property renting service works
Leveraging our local and market knowledge in London, industry connections and negotiation edge, we strive to put you in a solid position to get the best rental properties and deals. With expert guidance and support at every step, we ensure a smooth and efficient experience. Here’s a breakdown of the six key steps we employ to help you find and secure your ideal rental property in London.
Step 1 – Consultation & property search brief
We’ll start with a consultation to understand all your requirements and preferences, forming the blueprint of the ideal rental property you’re looking for. We value the importance of a detailed and well-crafted search brief, considering every detail, such as preferred communities, neighbourhoods, nearby amenities, property types, and budget.
We can adjust your brief criteria throughout the search; this flexible, iterative process ensures we adapt to your changing needs.
Step 2 – Property search & viewings
After determining your specific requirements, we leverage close-knit relationships within the London property network to curate rentals that meet your criteria, whether on or off-market, giving you a wide selection of rentals to consider.
As new rentals become available, we’ll keep revising your shortlist so you always have the latest options. We’ll also provide advice and explain 1he potential and fit of every rental in the shortlist to help you make informed decisions.
Having an expert undertake viewings of your shortlisted properties (with or without you) can be invaluable, as they can assess a property’s condition, looking for anything as leverage for negotiations to get the best deal possible. If you cannot attend in-person viewings, we can provide virtual viewings.
Step 3 – Property selection and negotiation terms
Once you’ve found your perfect property, we will negotiate on your behalf, using any leverage we’ve identified during viewings to get the best possible rental terms.
Step 4 – Referencing
Before moving into your rental, we’ll help with the referencing process, going through it as quickly and seamlessly as possible to prevent delays with your move-in.
Step 5 – Your move
Finally, by working with all parties involved, we’ll make sure nothing is amiss and make the necessary arrangements to ensure a seamless start to your tenancy. As part of our separate settling service offering, we can handle the utilities and logistics of the move on your behalf. We’ll continue to support you with any issues or queries after your move.
