If you’re not already set on an area, we would recommend doing some research into a few areas you like the look of. As well as online, you can also spend some time in each place, perhaps at different times of day, to explore what they have to offer.
Have a look through our area guides for more information about where we cover, including schools, transport, restaurants and local businesses.
Now to the fun part! Register your interest so that you are the first to hear about new properties that come to the market. It’s good to know your requirements - how many bedrooms do you need; is outside space important; do you have requirements on which floor you need to live on; are you more interested in period conversions or new builds? Then you can start arranging viewings and having a look around.
Once you’ve found the perfect property you’ll need to submit an offer to us that we can put forward to the landlord. As well as your offer amount, we’ll need to know about bit you and what you do, as well as how long you’d like to rent the property and also your preferred move-in date.
Once terms have been agreed with the landlord we will request a holding deposit (1 weeks’ rent) to secure the property while we commence with referencing.
We use a referencing company called Van Mildert and you will need to provide them with details of your employment including salary and tenure. You will also need to give them your current/previous landlord’s information so they can collect a referencing from them. Van Mildert will also conduct a credit check on all tenants.
You will need to provide us with copies of your passports as well as any relevant visas and/or Biometric Resident’s Permits. This is a requirement for all tenants, even if they are not named on the tenancy agreement.
I recently used Dutch and Dutch to rent out my flat in West Hampstead. They were responsive and professional throughout. Huw Howell-Pryce found fantastic tenants very quickly on short notice, and Bianca Selman did a great job of organising all necessary certificates and checks to make the flat tenant-ready. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Really good experience with this team. Strong communication and they help quickly and efficiently to resolve our issues. Would recommend!
Everything was very clear and easy to access. Our agent Huw Howell-Pryce was very responsive, professional and most importantly reliable. I would highly recommend him.
James Hall at Dutch & Dutch provided outstanding service. The overall process of renting a property was outstanding. So quick and easy! Would 100% recommend this estate agent to anyone. Thank you helping me find my perfect home.
Having dealt with numerous agents, Dutch & Dutch stood out to me with their kind, helpful, friendly and efficient service. Great team. Would absolutely recommend.
Having just sold my property through Dutch & Dutch, of which I can highly recommend, especially Reuben Barnard, who has been incredibly helpful and professional throughout the whole process and a pleasure to deal with.
Huw was incredibly helpful and very patient with us which is so refreshing! I highly recommend!
Thank you Peter Wilson for the services done of our new premises. Alex Motorcycles.
