For 60 years we have been making it easy for prospective tenants to find suitable homes, providing a seamless service from selection to possession.
To take advantage of our extensive database of high quality rental properties throughout London, you can register by calling one of our 21 letting offices.
We will arrange for you to inspect selected properties at your convenience, including evenings and Saturdays. One of our team will always accompany you to view a property.
Once you have settled on a suitable property, we will submit your offer to the landlord for instructions.
Upon agreement of terms we will apply for references and prepare a tenancy agreement.

Prior to occupation we will submit a statement for advance payment of the first month / quarter's rent, the deposit and tenancy agreement costs, together with any other incidental sums that might arise.
We must be in possession of cleared funds before keys are released and occupation commences.
You will be met at the property by the inventory clerk who will go through the inventory with you. On satisfaction, you will be asked to sign the document, the keys will be passed over to you and you are then able to move in to your new home.
Benham and Reeves will be available throughout your tenancy to provide advice and support.
