We have been helping tenants find their ideal homes in the vibrant West London area for over 30 years. Tenants who register with us can be assured of great service when property searching and onward, for the life of their tenancies.
As an independent agent we have a wealth of knowledge about the local market that we can offer our clients. We aim to provide a high quality service while keeping tenant fees to an absolute minimum.
Our dedicated service for tenants goes to great lengths to help find your home. We can arrange viewings to suit you and can quickly and efficiently identify potential housing opportunities suitable for every applicant. Once a tenancy is agreed, our well trained and on-site staff will help alleviate much of the hassle associated with moving home.
You can browse our current and soon to be available properties online but if you have specific requirements or wish to enquire about residential property opportunities available a bit further in future then we encourage you to contact us directly. We can draw on extensive landlord contacts in the local area to line up specific suitable properties or in advance of your availability date if you get in contact with us now.
We feel all of our tenants and tenant applicants can benefit from this great ethos. Since the beginning, we have catered to Japanese expats who not only required a company that understands the London rental market intimately but who had also come to expect a traditional method of attentive and respectful customer service. Our standards of excellent customer service are at the very core of our company which may be why our existing tenants stay with us, our previous tenants return to us and why they both recommend us.
Choosing a reputable agent is important. Our tenants can be confident that their tenancies will be handled correctly from the first viewing until the last day and beyond. As a member of mydeposits, our tenants can be secure in the knowledge that their tenancy deposits are protected in an approved government scheme. We are here to responsibly resolve any issue you may experience and are fully compliant with industry codes of conduct, further backed by independent redress via The Property Redress Scheme. All client funds, such as deposits and rent money, are further backed with full client money protection provided by Client Money Protect. We pride ourselves on our high standards and hope that by choosing us you will be able to experience them for yourselves.
Other agents are happy to make various charges to prospective tenants in advance of even the contracts being signed. Administrative charges and holding deposits can equal in the region of several weeks rent and many hundreds of pounds. These charges can seriously impair a prospective tenant’s actual rental budget. By contrast, once our prospective tenants have identified one of our properties they will be asked to put down only a £250 flat rate holding deposit to commit their offer and as security against successful collection of references. Once the offer goes through and is accepted then only a £50 incl. VAT tenancy deposit administration charge is deducted and the remainder is credited back towards the first month’s rent and tenancy deposit (tenancy deposit is usually equivalent to 6 weeks rent).
If the landlord rejects your fully referenced offer then we are happy to refund your holding deposit in full. Only if a prospective tenant fails their reference checks or subsequently takes back their original offer must we retain the holding deposit to cover our administrative costs. We carry on this low fee policy throughout any tenancy, for example we do not charge administration fees for issuing contracts or negotiating renewals. Our tenants can expect to save hundreds of pounds in agency fees over the life of a tenancy compared to our main competitors. This means that our tenants’ money can be put towards a better home rather than paying for agency costs, an altogether fairer arrangement for our tenants.
