We advise that renting a property is not a complicated process. The more you know about your requests, the easier your search to find the property will be. We have summarised the whole process in the easy 8 stages as below:are professional estate and letting agents and we can help you find professional tenants, get the right price and manage the paperwork. We have summarised the process on stages as below:
Stage 1 Decide from the main requests and basics
Stage 2 Register your interest
- Initially is a good idea to draw a wish list mainly with “essential” and “and non-essentials”, to make your decisions easier. In the list you may take into considerations: Area, Transport links, Size and type; other things to consider: a House or flat in London? How many bedrooms do you need? Do you need a spare room? Do you need balcony or garden? And the most important: your budget
The first step is to register with us either by calling us on 020 72811 222 where you can discuss your property requirements with one of our local agents or by registering online see the registration form below
Stage 3 The search begins
Having in mind your requirements from the above stage you will search and find a selection of properties that match your requirements.
In order to secure the property, we recommend you to organise an early viewing asap.
Stage 4 Contact agents to arrange a viewing
We are delighted to organise viewings for you at times to suit you, convenient for viewing after work and at weekends:
Stage 5 Deciding in a property to rent
We are mainly online and over the phone open 8am-8pm, 7 days a week.
Our outside office hours are essential and we have carried out the majority of viewings after work and at weekends

After viewings and once you've identified the property and you have supplied us with your details of referees, referencing process will start and all your information will be forwarded to the landlord for acceptance
Stage 6 Documents and paperwork – subject to contract
AST Agreement - Tenancy agreement. After the landlord confirms that he/she would like to proceed with the tenancy, we will draw up the relevant paperwork using our forms or landlord forms (whichever has been priory agreed), and the agreement to be signed by both parties with be ready shortly. Where we are instructed: an inventory of the contents and condition of the property prior to commencement of the tenancy will be drawn. A copy of this document will be supplied to both you the tenant and the landlord.
Stage 7 Security deposit and advance rental payment
An advance rental payment non-refundable is required prior to the commencement of the tenancy in the form of the holding deposit which shows your commitment to take over the tenancy.
Stage 8 Contract signed – Completion stage
A security deposit is also required from the tenant. This will be refunded to you at the end of the tenancy term and will be subject to the details of your agreement and the inventory check-out report. Based on the recent regulations, your deposit will be held by a third party as part of the TDPS (Tenancy deposit protection scheme).
When all the funds have been cleared, the only thing left is to move into your London flat or house. We’ll arrange for you to pick up the keys. Where possible we use an independent inventory company at the beginning and end of all our tenancies, to make sure that the inventory is accurate and fair.
Congratulations, keys are now handed over and you can move in to your place!
