Why is the Central London lettings market growing?

There is no one answer, rather a combination of factors. These include:-

Flexibility and choice unique to renting – many tenants choose to rent so they can move about the capital as they need to, whether it’s for work or social reasons. Today’s tenants are confident in their choice of status and benefit from the quicker set-up timeframes and lower initial move-in cost compared to buying a property – especially when they deal directly with a landlord like Residential Land.

Better quality of Central London rentals – landlords such as Residential Land are focused on providing tenants with bright, well maintained, modern properties to rent where people would want to call home. One of the best things about renting a property is that they hold less responsibility than owning your own home, especially with a 24 hour maintenance service available, such as the one provided by Residential Land which suits busy London residents who have peace of mind provided by a professional landlord.

A more transparent, governed industry – protecting our tenants is of paramount importance and we ensure every let we manage is legally compliant and safe. We make it our business to stay on top of the industry’s laws and legislations for tenants’ peace of mind. We are determined to be the respected, trustworthy face of lettings in London, delivering a first-class service direct to tenants and pushing rogue landlords out of business.

A competitive buying market – more Londoners are turning to the rental market as they have found buying a property in Central London a frustrating or fruitless process. For many, a rental property has become the quickest way of securing a premium address in the capital, with some exemplary rental properties in enviable locations available through Residential Land.

Central London rentals – the future
There’s good news ahead, with plans to increase the number of properties to rent in Central London, catering for an increasing population and rising desire to live in the capital. Institutional investment in the private rental sector – of which Residential Land was one of the first – is being backed by the Government’s £1 billion Build to Rent scheme, with quality accommodation for more conscientious tenants who expect a professional service.
