The idea of renting in London can seem somewhat daunting, especially if you’re new to the area and aren’t really sure of what to expect. With a growing number of apartments and studio flats to rent in London, the real question still stands - where exactly should you start looking?
If you’re a young professional or student, renting from a professional landlord is a no-brainer when it comes to securing a high-quality, safe and secure rental property for the duration of your stay. Professional landlords work with a limited number of trusted partners in order to offer exclusive residential, corporate or student accommodation and in addition, have experience working with a range of different accommodation types located in different areas throughout the city.
Whether that be serviced accommodation, long term rentals, student accommodation or holiday rentals - the bottom line is that professional landlords will often go the extra mile to ensure you’re being matched with property suitable for your day to day needs - so there’s no doubt you’ll be able to find exactly what it is you’re looking for with them.
Below we cover some more additional benefits of what you can expect when renting from a professional landlord in London, whether that be renting as a professional or as a student.
Experts in Serviced Accommodation
If you’re a professional moving to the city for a short-term project and are looking for a place to call home for the duration of your stay, a serviced accommodation may be just the solution for you. London can be a costly city to stay in therefore serviced apartments are perfect for keeping the costs to a minimum, working out considerably cheaper than staying at a hotel (all amenities and facilities are at no hidden cost to you so you know exactly what it is you’re paying for upfront).
However, rest assured there’s no compromise on the comfort of your stay – in most cases, serviced apartments offer additional living space compared to the average hotel room in London for the same price – and what’s more, you won’t have to worry about unnecessary housekeeping disturbing you frequently at odd hours of the day either so you can relax and enjoy the peace and privacy of your apartment at all times.
Not only are serviced accommodation a great all-inclusive option, but they’re also extremely flexible in terms of what they can offer you. Serviced apartments in London come in a range of different sizes to suit your needs (whether that’s a studio, 1 bed or 2 bed that you’re after) and usually have the flexibility to be presented to you furnished or partially furnished. Moreover, serviced apartments from professional landlords are equipped with all the facilities you’ll ever need for both work and leisure that you may otherwise not find in the average private rental, guest house or bed and breakfast i.e. a gym, spa, terrace, co-working space, lounge.
Friendly Student Accommodation
Other than the basic requirements of having the property be in close proximity of a university campus and being affordable in pricing, purpose-built student accommodations go further beyond that – often integrating large communal spaces to encourage a social atmosphere to make it easier to meet other students on your university campus outside of your course throughout your degree.
What’s more, unlike other private accommodation you might come across, professional landlords will usually keep things simple for you by including any extra payments you’ll need to make (i.e. bills and council tax) in your monthly rental payments all in one go – so that’s one less thing for you to worry about when getting settled in.
One of the biggest advantages when it comes to renting purpose-built student accommodation is their flexibility when it comes to a minimum length of stay. This could be particularly useful if you have a summer internship lined up for example, or for any other reason in which you may be on campus for a shorter period of time.
Understandably, one of the main concerns as a student when it comes to moving to a big new city is of course safety – and this couldn’t be a more valid reason for choosing to rent with a professional landlord as they will do all their due diligence to ensure that they only offer to you safe and secure accommodation that they can firmly stand by, and in addition, will be contactable on-demand at all hours of the day to respond and resolve any issues you may have immediately without fail.
Renting your long term apartment using professional landlords can also offer benefits such as more flexible tenancy options, well-maintained developments or building with on-site management and purpose-built communal spaces such as gyms, parking spaces and communal gardens.
