London’s prime and super-prime rental markets are booming, with high global demand for long, short, corporate and luxury student lets. For tenants, the competition can be great. That’s where the two Harrods Estates offices in the prime locations of Knightsbridge and Mayfair can help.

All clients will be supported through each step of the lettings process and we have linguists at hand to provide further assistance where required.


Identification: You will need to provide an original copy of one or more of the following: passport, national ID card, driving license, bank details and proof of address. You will also need to pass a Right to Rent check for any tenancy in England beginning on or after 1st February 2016. This will require a face-to-face meeting with each tenant aged 18+ to verify likeness and consistency of the supporting ID documents within 28 days prior to the tenancy commencing.

Referencing: Provide contact details for your current employer, a character reference and details of any current or previous landlords. Additional materials may be required.

Deposit: Paid in advance as security, the sum is usually equal to four to six weeks rent, depending on circumstances.

When the rental term expires, subject to no arrears or difference between the Check In and Check out Inventory, the deposit will be returned to the tenant. Where a difference occurs, it is the tenant’s responsibility to pay the amount owed. This may include the cost to repair or replace any damage caused, loss of furnishing and/or the cost of professional cleaning.
