We offer a range of high quality residential properties in and around London. Our aim is to make the process of renting a property through us as easy as possible.

Lettings Process

Holding deposit

To submit an offer on a property we require a holding deposit equivalent to 2 weeks rent.Once this payment is received in cleared funds we carry the terms of the offer to the landlord who will then make a decision.

If the offer is accepted by the landlord the holding deposit becomes non-refundable and forms part of the security deposit. In the event of the offer being rejected by the landlord the holding deposit is refunded in full.
