Our Corporate Tenants
We work with a broad range of corporate tenants, from graduates to company directors and diplomats, they come to us knowing their requirements will be dealt with in strictest confidence and utmost professionalism.

As well as corporate tenants, we’re often asked to secure tenancies for Embassies, Government and other official departments. Whatever the requirement, their move will be in experienced hands – after all, we’ve been doing it for over 20 years.

We have experienced ARLA trained staff working in all our offices and by working together we can ensure our corporate tenants are offered a great service so they keep coming back to us and our landlords.

Part of this process involves making sure we recruit only the best people for every department. In addition, with a staff retention rate of over 90%, we know how to hold onto good people.

Benefits To Our Landlords
Landlords often request corporate tenants for their properties as they are aware that rent is paid in full, on time and more often than not their rental return is maximised. Furthermore, properties let to corporate tenants are nearly always extremely well maintained and looked after as the occupants stay in the property is a reflection of the company itself.

Our experience also shows that our corporate tenants are often contracted to work in London for several years, minimising the risk of a void period for our landlords. We even offer to spread the payment of our commission throughout the duration of the contract so that our landlords receive rental income as soon as their tenant moves in and can enjoy the benefit of a long term tenant.

Day To Day Living
Often companies want their employees to have a professional contact close to hand should something need doing during the tenancy. Our property management teams, based at strategic and accessible locations across London, have many years’ property management experience and are always available to give advice.

As well as arranging the necessary tests and checks to ensure everything in the property is working properly and compliant with current legislation, we can also have any works carried out whether it’s a simple repair or a full refurbishment. We have a database of reliable people at our fingertips who we can call on to ensure the home is just as they would want it. A home away from home, if you like.
