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.
