Recommended Rental Agent for Battersea/Clapham?

Postby stjames88 » Thu Jun 18, 2020 3:15 pm

Hello! We are moving (back!) to London in early 2021, and looking for a family home to rent around Northcote Road / Honeywell area. Does anyone have any great real estate agents they'd recommend? We want to get the kids back to school as soon as we can, so getting settled into one place would be amazing and not having to move around!

Rampton Baseley on Nothcote road. Friend has rented out her 5 bed house for about 10 years through them and always raves.

I second Rampton Baseley, Northcote Road. After using many local agents to try and find a property to rent we found them honest, with a great selection of quality homes and not too pushy.

Hi - are you American? The reason I ask is that you describe them as "real estate" agents, and to say that they don't work the same here as they do in the US. Here you really need to be signed on with as many agents as possible as they will only show you properties whose owners have registered with them. It's not like in the US where they can show you everything that's on the market. So really you want to be registering with all the agents in the area you're looking for and calling them on a regular basis so they know you're keen and if anything good comes up you'll hopefully get first dibs. If you stick with one agent you may miss the perfect property.

If you’re going to be searching for a place before you arrive, you might want to get help from a local property sourcer (a bit like a US realtor).

I have lived and rented off Northcote Rd since 2005 and have 3 kids in the local primary and secondary schools, we absolutely love it here as sounds like you know the area too? PM me if you think I may be able to help.
