Knight Frank Lettings in Chelsea
Our Chelsea letting agents office (SW3) is prominently located on the corner of Beaufort Street and Kings Road. We handle a wide variety of properties to let, from the best 1 bedroom flats to the finest large family houses, in Chelsea and the surrounding areas.
We have an experienced team of staff who are passionate about providing the best possible level of service. We offer our clients and applicants the consummate property package, as well as exceptional, professional and efficient service.
With the help of our in-house corporate services department we offer a global perspective to the Chelsea lettings market.
We have secured properties for tenants from over 40 nationalities within the last 12 months, demonstrating the wide ranging international demand for prime central London property.
“Demand in the prime central London lettings market remained subdued in April against the background of falling stock markets and commodity prices. Given the volatility in global financial markets, the FTSE 100 is about 12% lower than it was a year ago while the Goldman Sachs Commodity Index has fallen about 30% over the last 12 months. As a result, many companies are cutting their accommodation and relocation budgets for senior staff or, in some instances, sending them to London for shorter periods of time. As a result, executives formerly on budgets of £1,500 per week or more are now typically in accommodation where rental values are less than £1,000 per week, often in lower-value areas of London that are further east. Across prime central London, the decline in rental value growth has been less marked in lower price brackets. It is reflective of stronger demand below £1,000 per week, a price bracket that encompasses professionals at early stages of their career and more senior executives on reduced budgets. Exacerbating the fact demand has slowed between £1,500 to £5,000 per week is the fact more supply has come onto the market due to uncertainty over the short-term trajectory of the sales market. One area of uncertainty for companies is the EU referendum in June and there are signs some are taking precautions ahead of a vote that could see the UK leave the EU. Some international companies are delaying relocations and lettings deals until after the Brexit vote. Against this uncertain backdrop, annual rental value growth declined to -1.8% in April, which was the lowest rate for two years.” Natalie Berthiaud, Lettings Manager
