Our Lettings Service
Our network of offices across central, west and south-west London work together to find the best possible tenants for London rental property. We know that our professionalism, expertise and local know-how gets us the best results.
Our Office Network
We know that tenants, more than buyers, tend to search for their property across a variety of different locations. This is especially true for the 50 per cent of our tenants who are relocating to London from overseas. Our network of closely-linked London offices benefit both landlords and tenants; landlords are reassured that their property is exposed to the widest number of prospective tenants; and tenants are, in turn, presented with an extensive choice of properties to rent in London. In short, when a landlord registers their property to rent with one Marsh & Parsons office, they are tapping into the energy and expertise of all our London offices.
Our people are career agents – they take their work very seriously, operating with a professionalism that the best tenants expect. We’re up to date with all the latest legislation and we are members of ARLA and The Property Ombudsman Scheme. For more information about our credentials, click here.
We’re also a pleasure to deal with. People with high standards want to work for businesses with the same high standards. That’s how we’re able to attract the kind of people we do – helpful, energetic, scrupulous and proactive. So much so, that it’s not just the result you’ll enjoy – you’ll love the experience of dealing with Marsh & Parsons too.
We recognise that estate agents don’t have a great image and yes, it’s hard for us to admit that. But we also know that the best agents are highly valued because they stand out from the crowd, and they know the area in which they rent property, intimately. They know the people who live there and they know the different streets and properties inside and out. Our core principle is ‘Local know how – better results’, and we expect our knowledge to make the difference for you. We aim to be an agency that understands the local area around our offices better than any other agent and it’s why the properties we let don’t stand around un-let for too long; just ask any local tenant!
Our Additional Services
Our dedicated Corporate & Relocation Services department has strong links with global employers ranging from banks and energy companies to law firms and embassies. Our experience tells us that corporate tenants are often the best – they are the most reliable, careful and usually have the most achievable budgets. We look after corporate tenants just as meticulously as we do our private tenants, because we know the pressures they face and the level of service they expect. We’re also, very often, the first port of call for relocation agents searching for London property to rent on behalf of their clients.
Our International Desk takes enquiries from all over the world and can connect tenants to 21 foreign languages within the Marsh & Parsons network. This ensures that renters looking to move from abroad are given warm support.
Property Management relieves stress for both landlords and tenants. In our experience, the best tenants are more attracted to properties that are professionally managed by an expert. Distance between a landlord and tenant is more likely to result in a longer and more secure tenancy. For more information about the service provided by our Property Management team, click here. Equally, our Renewals team are on hand to discuss the end of a tenancy with the landlord and tenant – and if the London property market has changed since the initial contract was signed, then we’ll use our market insight, local know-how and negotiating skills to make the next phase of the tenancy more valuable.
More and more tenants are looking for a short let in London. This can range from just a few weeks to six months. Short lets do command a premium, yet provide an alternative to a costly hotel stay.

Placing the right tenant in your property depends on the right people seeing it. So for us, marketing is not a side issue – it’s at the heart of what we do. We have a specialist marketing department who give every property local, national and international exposure. We advertise on- and offline, including in a diverse range of local magazines and national newspapers. As well as running an award-winning website, we also advertise on all the major property portals including Primelocation, Zoopla and Rightmove. We retain the services of a PR agency and where appropriate we will create a PR plan to provide editorial coverage. And to make sure that every property is shown in the best light, we always take professional photographs of every property to rent in London.
