Your typical, run in the mill megalopolis is nothing fancy when it comes to property types. There are some fancy skyscrapers with luxurious penthouses downtown, a few apartment blocks scattered around here and there, and a handful of picturesque cottages in the family-friendly suburbs. We simply design modern cities in such a way for convenience.
London’s design is not a carefully crafted pattern. It is rather the result of evolution as some of the stones you casually step on today were set there by none other than the ancient Romans. The capital of Great Britain is almost 2000 years old.
Architecture in the capital is a mishmash of eras, cultures, and craft that has every considerable property type and then some situated in the most unexpected of places.
On the one hand, we believe that the variety is a great plus as it has been helping us help our clients with relocation for 15 years now. Just tell us your wildest desires and the odds (or should we say a 100% success rate?) are we’ll find a great fit for you in less than a day.
On the other, more choice means more research. You do need to know what you are getting yourself and your close ones into, right?
Purpose-built structures, aka apartment blocks, are generously sprinkled all over the city. Studio flats, duplexes, maisonettes – you name it, they’ll have it in every Zone of the capital.

Pay close attention to your tenancy agreement. Is it a shared tenancy or a separate one? Does the rent cover the bills? What are the ground rules (no smoking policy, pet policy, your responsibilities, and obligations, etc.)?
