I would highly recommend LR!
At the end of the viewings I had a short list of my favourite apartments and we went to the estate agents where Ryan started the negotiations. By the time I was getting back on the Eurostar for the last train back to Belgium Ryan informed me that my offer had been accepted. Over the next few days we finalised the contracts, payments and moving in date etc. While the cost of the service is substantial and there is a minimum fee, it’s definitely worth it. I would have had to take a week off work to arrange and see that many apartments and also remember that without a car you will be relying on public transport meaning a lot more hassle and less time to see apartments as London is so huge. Hotels and food costs will also be significant for a week in London remember.
Furthermore, if like me you had read all the stories about fraud on the internet and unscrupulous landlords when you go it alone, it was reassuring that LRS acted as a middleman for all discussions with the estate agents and crucially, for the payments too. Finally, Devon and Mat were always on the ball in the office and this saved me more time and hassle. For example, when Devon fixed my appointment with a bank so I could open an account. I have now moved in, I am very happy with my place and I am all set up and ready to start my new job. I would highly recommend LR!
Working with you has been nothing but a pleasure!!!!
You took care of all the details, from the big right down to those that we were unaware of, and for that we can only say a big “Thank you!” Working with you has been nothing but a pleasure, and we would highly recommend you to any of our friends who make the move to London as well. We know that if they do, they won’t be disappointed!
London Relocation was the perfect choice
They were there every step of the way, we could not have asked for better!

Extremely dedicated to their clients and go the extra mile for you.
From the first email and follow-up phone call I felt that this company really would deliver what they promise. They are extremely dedicated to their clients and go the extra mile for you. Their staff is extremely helpful, answers questions right away, they are professional but at the same time make you feel very comfortable and immediately at home. I was moving into the UK from NYC, which is quite a big move. The assistance I have received from London Relocation was simply impeccable. It would have been impossible to have such a smooth transition without them. Everyone who hears that I saw 22 apartments in One single viewing day cant quite understand how this is humanly possible – but believe me, they made it work in a very comfortable, elegant and extremely sufficient way. And what is more, they secured me a beautiful apartment by the end of that day! They also negotiate the rate for you and they answer any single little question you may have even AFTER you have moved in.
I have not only found an amazing flat thanks to Devon, Ryan and Mat, but I also found new friends in them. Thank you all very much! I can highly recommend using their services. I don’t think you can find anybody better for this job.
I would recommend them without hesitation
During a visit, they took me to see 19 places in one day and were very accommodating, knowledgeable, and efficient. They also kept my wife, who was in the US, in the loop by emailing her the shortlisted flats/houses and calling her long-distance that day. The lease to a great place was signed shortly after and we could not have done it without them. We eventually got much more house than we thought due to their excellent negotiations with the landlord.
I cannot say enough about these guys, they really care about what they are doing and go far out of their way to help you. I would recommend this relocation agency without hesitation.

We made it to well over 20 properties!
And, just like they promised, I found the flat I wanted within a day and all thanks to their hard work and effort! They’ve been extremely attentive through every step of the process, and I really don’t know why I waited so long in using their services. Definitely the best way to go if you intend on moving to London, don’t even think twice!

I only had good experience with London Relocation from the first contact to the end
They were fantastic
They were fantastic; they’re extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of rental property, listened carefully to my needs, and showed me over 20 flats that met my specifications in one day. They then negotiated a very favorable rental agreement, protecting me in ways I wouldn’t have thought of.
The level of service is superb. Every step of the way they’ve made things easy that otherwise would be difficult and overwhelming. As a professional with a very demanding job and single mom, I couldn’t have handled my move without Matt and AJ.

I understand why everyone is so happy with the service.
In the lead up to getting to England I researched this relocation agency to death and to be honest, I was a little skeptical when I could find not one bad review online. It made me start to think that perhaps it was too good to be true. Since our day out though, I can honestly say I understand why everyone is so happy with the service. Their team were really helpful and from the outset and went through what we were looking for in a lot of detail. On the day we saw about 20 houses and would have been happy to rent about 1/3 (which is pretty good odds!) We ended up with our first choice and managed to move in 2 days after our initial viewing (and it would have been sooner but we had Good Friday to contend with!) They negotiated our lease agreement for us (including getting the weekly rent decreased considerably) and negotiating break clauses (both of these things I doubt we would have been game enough to try by ourselves). The written information they send through is invaluable and it’s how we managed to set up our power and water – strangely the real estate agent had no interest in dealing with us after we’d signed the lease, so thank god for London Relocation.
I highly recommend this relocation agency, they made moving to England so simple. We had definitely underestimated how important having a home base would be when we started looking for jobs and started settling into the UK life. These guys are worth their weight in gold!

Service complet, rapide et efficace pour une installation à Londres
Quelques appartements ne correspondaient pas à 100% à nos critères (budget), mais nous avons tout de même trouvé notre bonheur. A la fin de journée, nous avons choisi 4 appartements qui nous ont beaucoup plu, et nous avons pu réserver notre appartement le jour même! Tout au long de la journée de visite, Ryan nous a donné plein de conseils très utiles.
Il a établi une relation de confiance. Ryan sait ce dont les nouveaux arrivants à Londres ont besoin. Il nous a montré par exemple les différentes chaines de supermarchés, restaurants, et nous a conseillé pour le choix de l’appartement. Plusieurs informations supplémentaires nous ont également été fournies (n° à appeler pour les taxes, téléphone, électricité, gaz, …).
London Relocation a suivi notre dossier jusqu’à notre installation à Londres. Ils ont régulièrement demandé de nos nouvelles. Nous recommandons vivement les services de London Relocation à toute personne qui veut s’installer à Londres. Si nous avions voulu organiser les visites nous même, sans passer par ce service, il nous aurait fallu une bonne semaine de galère. Nous venons d’emménager dans l’appartement. Nous sommes ravis!

But with the extremely professional support by the guys at London Relocation Services, I felt totally safe. On the viewing day I had lots of fun and viewed about 15 flats. I moved in about a week later and London Relocation Services continued to provide me with support and advices for all types of practical matters related to the relocation.
When looking back at the flat finding process, I realize I couldn’t have done it better on my own, even if I would have spent a whole month searching for suitable flats. And now, It was all done.

London Relocation is your best bet!
With hindsight I don’t even know why I didn’t go to them right away. In a word they are the Best.

A top-notch effort from a top-notch team
On the day of the search it was great having someone who knew about London property market and having a driver meant that there were never any difficulties finding parking, leaving much more time to see various places that London Relocation team had pulled together.
They certainly took a lot of the stress out of the process and they were great at following up even after the search had concluded, to make sure the new flat was all ok and everything working properly. A top notch effort from a top notch team.
They saved us time, money and stress!
Ryan took us round the various properties on our viewing or ‘appointment’ day. He showed us 15 apartments, as promised, and with his negotiating skills we managed to lease our favorite at a lower rent than originally asked and with improvements to some of the fittings. He and our ‘chauffeur’ were great company and we really enjoyed the experience. Once in our accommodation Mat willingly provided assistance with setting up media and was especially helpful in getting our bank account organized. All three of these individuals were courteous, friendly and cooperative. Any questions we had were answered punctually and in full so we knew exactly what to expect and how to prepare.
Using LR enabled us to avoid the pitfalls that are likely to occur for newcomers to the local rental market. They saved us time, money and stress. We are extremely happy in our new home and unreservedly recommend LR as a professional and caring organization that fulfills all of its commitments to its clients.

They all did a great job!
What I did not know at the time was that the services provided by Philly, Ryan and Mat was much better than expected-they all did a great job and I finally found the perfect flat in the perfect environment. London Relocation was the best choice for me to save time and money-Many thanks!
And here’s the best part: the service does not end there!
I have to mention that this is no easy task, and your relocation guide will keep you completely on track and focused. He does most of the talking, leaving you to the important part, decision making! Once you make your decision, all you have to do is tell the team “I want this one”, and the rest they take care of, from low balling rent offers, to working on break clauses in contracts, helping you put through the payments and having you not have to deal with frustratingly immature and inept real estate agents, basically they take all your problems, leaving you to worry about how you are going to move all your stuff in. And here’s the best part, the service does not end there, I’ve been pestering Mat with a billion questions (which he’s going to hate me for mentioning here because it’s potentially going to open him up to a flooded inbox), question from “what exactly does furnished mean?”, “what size bed does the apartment have” etc, and without fail Mat comes through with a response time that would make the Queen’s Royal Guard pale at. So a big thanks to the relocation team, you guys have made this move a HEAP easier and I’m really glad you guys love problems. Very much appreciate it.
Hope everyone well …. Thank you so much for taking care of Cleveland our daughter!!!

Worth every penny…and fun!
Cancelled appointments, disappointing properties that didn’t meet my criteria and all the good places going before I could get a viewing was just too much stress while also trying to focus on a new job. I called London Relocation on a Wednesday and they had me out viewing almost 20 places that Saturday! There was not one of them that I couldn’t imagine living in and they got my criteria spot on.
It was really fun driving around the city getting to know the areas better from above the ground and Kenneth, my Property Search Agent, made it all look so easy! I have my signed contract now and looking forward to moving to my new place! I’d highly recommend calling Matt and AJ sooner rather than later, you won’t regret it!

They did a great job of educating me on the process
We have our dream apartment!
Daarna krijg je uitgebreid hulp bij het doen van een bod, het opstellen van de contracten, het aanvragen een bankrekening, het aansluiten van telefoon/gas/water&licht en dat alles voor niet meer dan je bij andere makelaars zou betalen. We denken dat veruit de meeste mensen hun gewenste appartement binnen 1 dag bezichtigen kunnen vinden. En zelfs als dat niet het geval mocht zijn, dan krijg je een goed idee van hoe de markt werkt en wat je kunt krijgen voor je geld in London.
Mocht je dan alsnog iets vinden op internet, dan helpt Relocation je nog steeds met alles. Wat we vooral erg prettig van Relocation vonden is het razendsnelle en persoonlijk contact via SMS, email en telefoon. Je krijgt updates over waar ze mee bezig zijn, b. v. als ze een afspraak bij de bank regelen, bellen je ook zonder problemen internationaal en ze zijn zelfs buiten kantoortijden bereikbaar. We hebben ons droomappartement voor een prima prijs in hartje London gevonden, met dank aan Relocation.

We felt in good hands, and things went incredibly smoothly
We don’t know how we could have made it without this Relocation agency and their help, and we would most certainly recommend it to anyone wishing to relocate to England.

Would we go for a beer with these guys? Definitely!
The best part of the process was that it didn’t feel like a business arrangement, it actually felt like you were dealing with friends. Would we go for beer with these guys? Definitely!
Working with them was the best decision I could have made
I met with Kenneth my search agent for a day in London a couple of weeks later and viewed 23 apartments in total. I must say that the standard of apartments I was shown exceeded all of my expectations! Although 23 sounds exhausting, it was more like a fun day out as he made the experience very enjoyable and there was no pressure which you sometimes feel when meeting estate agents. It was very clear that Kenneth and London Relocations had a good working relationship with most if not all of the top estate agents in London.
At the end of the day I had made my decision and Kenneth seemed to work magic with the estate agent negotiating a very reasonable price. London Relocations have managed to relieve me of all the stress I thought this move would bring and found me the perfect home in the process. Working with them was the best decision I could have made; friendly and professional with amazing results!
London Relocation is a great service
Mat went above and beyond in also finding us a lovely babysitter for the search day so we didn’t have to drag our son around. Many thanks, London Relocation is a great service.

Aldrig förut har jag upplevt sådant engagemang och superb service som jag fick hos London Relocation
Ä r du dessutom svensk och känner dig obekväm med att tala engelska så är det ett midre problem, då de har svensktalande personal. London är en fantastisk stad med all charm den besitter. Lika charmigt är det inte att ta sig an att öppna ett bank konto som nyanländ immigrant. Jag råder dig därför att även utnyttja deras tjänster för att öppna ett bank konto, om du nu är i behov av det, då det kan vara ett tidsförödande projekt på egen hand.
Vill slutligen bara påpeka att jag inte får betalt för att skriva det här. De är faktiskt såhär bra.
They showed us over 20 properties during a Saturday
When you add up the costs of hotels, broker’s fees, and the lower price of the apartment, they more than paid for themselves; let alone the stress and hassle that they allowed us to avoid by handling the entire England real estate system for us. We thank you and your team AJ!!!
In hindsight we could not have asked for better service.
