And We Have Lift Off!

After a protracted period of what can only be described as a stagnant central London Lettings market, activity has increased dramatically in the last couple of weeks and, moving towards Spring, we fully expect it to continue. Whilst much of our existing stock was let in February, many more new properties are coming to the […]

As Temperatures Drop, The Property Market Is Hotting Up!

Wow what a difference a few weeks make! Last month’s sales list was possibly one of the thinnest on record – thankfully this month’s is much more robust. As we moved into September the drought was broken and the phones didn’t stop ringing. We have more than doubled the number of available instructions which should […]

Lettings Market Is Raring To Go…

Whilst London played the delighted host of the summer Olympics, the Lettings market awakened from its summer slumber. After an expectedly quiet July, we found August brought Tenants for properties up to £900 per week in their droves – especially for 2 and 3 bedroom flats and houses ideal for sharers.

The London Olympics Aftermath

The Olympics have now come and gone – what a great success! Whilst I am sure many of us had our doubts, I think we can all agree that Londoners have something to be proud of, and yet further reason for London to be celebrated and recognised.

Rain Or Shine, London Is Always The City To Be In

As the rain continued to fall over the UK seemingly without an end in sight, the number of instructions coming to the Lettings market continued to multiply at a steady rate through July.

Home Advantage

Finally the work at our offices in South Kensington is complete and we are happy to announce that our new address is 4 & 5 Kynance Place. A much needed revamp and expansion, and whilst we are still undergoing the last few finishing touches, I hope everyone will agree that it looks great.

London’s long awaited Olympic summer is nearly upon us and by the end of this month the world will have had an opportunity to admire the lean and professional athletes taking part in the opening ceremony.

Letting the perfect home need not be an olympic task!

An extraordinary amount of activity through June has seen a healthy turnover of stock across central London so if you have been looking for some time, you should now see some new properties to choose from. We have seen particular demand for one and two bedroom pied-a-terres around Hyde Park as well as family houses […]

Diamond Life In London

Searching for timely inspiration for this article, my eyes were drawn to our Union Jack bunting patriotically displayed in our shop window and it occurred to me that if you are reading this, you are probably looking to rent at a very fortuitous time. Please believe me that it is not often I can say […]

Jubilee June

As we start the month with a four day weekend to celebrate our great monarch’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic torch is winding its way around the country, you may find yourself in the minority in reading this and looking for a mews or similar hidden gem this summer. Congratulations, as we are here to […]

Magnificent May Properties

Following the warmest March since records began, we have experienced what surely must have been the wettest April since the phrase ‘April showers’ was coined! I am very pleased to report that it has done little to dampen the Lettings market. In fact following a fairly slow start to 2012, we are very busy indeed. […]

Market Comments

The central London residential sales sector continues to remain short of stock and buyers are often having to compromise in order to successfully achieve their objectives. The Marylebone office, in which I am based, has had an unprecedented first quarter, having sold a variety of properties, mostly in under three viewings, since astute buyers know […]

Be Prepared

Lettings can be a confusing and often legally complicated process, especially when you first start looking for a property. So many properties not to mention estate agents to choose from and that is before you start considering your budget, requirements, location, schools, tube links etc. The list is seemingly endless.

Buying, Selling And Paperwork

I can’t quite believe that we are already a quarter through 2012. It’s been a busy three months and time has really flown by. Currently, the number of properties we have Under Offer (waiting to exchange) is at an all time high, but what all parties are finding very frustrating is the time it is […]

Keep on moving in February!

Coming back to work after the holidays is traditionally a busy time for prospective tenants. Both private and corporate tenants are making plans to relocate to London or simply upgrade from their current property. January has proven busy after a slow start around New Year. What is perplexing and needs to be considered by tenants […]

New Year, New Home!

2011 experienced quite dramatic peaks and troughs in London Lettings and indeed this time 12 months ago, there was a serious shortage of properties. Agents across London just could not meet the demand and as a result Landlords were achieving over asking price rents for the first time in 18 months!

A wider variety of properties to choose from

Would you like to move before Christmas? Yes? Then have we got a fantastic selection of properties for you! Traditionally December is more quiet as less people look to move so beat the January rush and start looking today. One of our ARLA qualified Negotiators will be happy to help.

Sparkling ‘hidden gems’ to let!

The Indian summer is now giving way to the more traditional crisp breezy weather expected of Autumn and everyone’s thoughts turn to the long planning of Christmas and the party season. Here at Lurot Brand we have launched a well planned and natural progression from mews properties to embrace London’s other ‘hidden gems’ – cottages […]
