All you need to know about renting a property
Whatever your reason, be it because you are moving to London for the first time and are unfamiliar with the different areas; or because you are here on a temporary assignment; whether you are refurbishing your home and need somewhere to stay short-term; or whether you simply want the flexibility to be able to move on easily, renting offers the ideal solution.
Legislation now means that tenants are better protected than ever before and the standards of accommodation on offer have improved massively. As a result, more people than ever are choosing to rent in London.
We can help you with the search for your perfect property, be it a small studio apartment or a substantial family house with parking and a garden, and regardless of whether it is listed by us or by another agent. Our only requirement is that the property we show you is “best in class”.
Landlords approach us to let their properties because of our unparalleled range of contacts and many of the properties we deal with never come to the open-market. As a tenant, therefore, by contacting us to discuss your requirements you are likely to have access to a range of properties that many others don’t even know are available.
A word of caution: unfortunately the lettings industry in the UK is largely unregulated and there are many unscrupulous landlords and agents, many of whom ignore current health and safety legislation. We strongly recommend, therefore, that you use only an ARLA Propertymark licensed agent in your search for a property such as Mark Tunstall Property.
One of the requirements for being a licensed member is that we are a member of a client money protection scheme. Our membership certificate can be downloaded here.
