Offices in China, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia and Singapore
Benham and Reeves opened its first international office in Hong Kong in 1995 shortly followed by our Singapore operation. The company has extended its global reach by opening offices in China, India and Malaysia providing a ‘local’ service to property investors based in these locations.
Our service is all-encompassing and covers everything any homeowner or investor needs: pre-purchase advice, introducing the best investment opportunities, furnishings and refurbishment, residential lettings, professional property management and a tax return service.
Our international offices avoid the need for long distance calls to London as our staff can meet you face to face and are happy to help. They are well versed in the London property market, are familiar with all the best locations and many residential property developments and can liaise with accounts and management departments on your behalf providing you with a smooth property transaction or rental.
Through our international office network and many years of experience of working at the heart of the London rentals market, we offer a competitively priced professional service that takes away the hassle of letting out your property so you can get on with living.
We only do property rentals. Most of our competitors are estate agents who do lettings as a side-line. All we do is lettings so the service we give you is considerably more focused on getting your property rented as quickly as possible.
We only deal with properly referenced professional and corporate tenants. A high percentage of our tenants are from global companies. These are the best tenants you can have. Typically they are employers who are sending their employees on assignment to London for 2-4 years. We also deal with a lot of human resources personnel and relocation companies who trust us to provide the best rental accommodation London has to offer.
We're on the spot. You can talk to someone face to face about your London property in your own time zone at one of our satellite offices.
Marc von Grundherr, Director of Benham & Reeves talks about how after several years of subdued house price growth, the recent General Election victory by the Conservatives has offered a sense of stability and greater confidence to property investors. The latest Rightmove Index has just seen the biggest January rise on record, up 2.3% led by a surge in London prices. The fundamentals of London property continue to be strong, as prices have increased by a staggering 75% over the last decade. High prices have left many Londoners unable to buy and so demand for rental accommodation in the capital remains phenomenal. A third of Londoners rent and 60% are expected to rent by 2025. Well-presented and accurately priced properties let within a couple of days with minimum voids. This is great news for landlords and will help them maximise their yields at a time when changes to tax legislation have presented some challenges. Our 17 lettings branches are situated on-site at some of London’s most popular residential developments and so we are ideally positioned to offer tenants and landlords an unrivalled service. If you have a property to let in London, or would like a free no-obligation rental valuation of your property please contact us.
