Our clients were relocating from Belgium to London and whilst their longer term plan is to purchase a property it was felt prudent to rent a property for at least 12 months to allow them to get a feel for the varying neighbourhoods of the capital. Their brief was for a lateral apartment, with at least 3 bedrooms and a minimum of 2000 square foot. Our clients travel frequently and so easy access to Heathrow and a good sized lift within the building were important requirements. The budget was set at a maximum of £4000 per week.
As our clients did not have a specific location in mind we previewed and shortlisted options all over prime central london: Mayfair, Belgravia, Pimlico, Kensington and St. James’s all had suitable properties however we identified a ninth floor apartment within a new development in the heart of Victoria which ticked all of the boxes. The property was 2695 square foot, had three bedrooms and two large terraces. It also benefitted from a concierge, underground parking and a large lift. The asking price was £3250 per week so well within the budget and we successfully negotiated this to £3000 per week which equated to a 8.3% saving for our client.
Our extensive knowledge of Prime Central London allowed us to advise and guide our clients as to the best possible locations for their tenancy.
