How We Work

Interlet essentially consists of two departments. Our Interlet International lettings team specialises in the letting of residential properties in Central London from £350pw, while our professional relocation consultants conduct bespoke property searches and offer affordable accommodation in the most popular areas of London from £100.

Our relocation department offers completely FREE service for tenants. Services to the tenant by Interlet cost £100 once a home is secured.* To take advantage of the this service, you need to become a member. Once you sign up for a membership with interlet, our dedicated consultants will source and contact landlords on your behalf and make appointments for you to view properties on the days you are available, leaving you free to deal with other matters. All that is required from you is to come to our office to register with us on first occasion only, all subsequent appointments can be made over the phone, e-mail or text message.

In addition to booking your appointments, our consultants can offer you advice on what to look for in which areas, as well as what to expect for your budget. To book your free consultation please call 0207 795 65 25.

*Some landlords may ask a contract or admission fee. This fee is payable directly to the landlords or landlord's agent/representative, not to interlet.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes you any different to an estate agency?

We are different because we offer the cheapest properties in Central London. We are the only agency in Central London that deals with bedsits, flatshares, houseshares as well as studios, 1, 2 and 3+ bedroom flats.

Which areas do you cover?

We specialise in the letting of properties in prime Central London areas such as Kensington, Chelsea, Knightsbridge, South Kensington, West Kensington, Mayfair, Bayswater, Queensway, Paddington, Baker Street, Hammersmith, Shepherd’s Bush, Chiswick, Acton, Fulham, Putney, Camden, Islington, Hampstead, Pimlico, Vauxhall, Stockwell and Clapham.

How soon will I find a property after registering?

How quickly you find something is really dependent on what you like and what you need. It also depends on your availablity to attend appointments. The majority of our properties are available immediately. It is entirely possible to move in on the same day you view a property depending on what the landlord requires (eg. references, proof of income, etc).

Why are your properties so cheap?

We're able to find the most affordable properties in Central/West London because we charge a very low commission to our landlords, and in return they keep rents low for us. Landlords with extensive portfolios heavily reduce their rents on smaller properties, which in some cases have resulted in savings of up to 25 per cent for the client.

How many appointments do I get? When can I view properties?

As a member of interlet, you are allowed an unlimited amount of appointments for up to one month. Different landlords will view at different times depending on their own schedules, but it is possible to view properties on weekdays, evenings and on weekends.

Do you have pictures?

Other than the pictures displayed on our website, we normally do not have access to additional property pictures. Due to the incredible pace at which properties appear and disappear in the London market, landlords often see no need to send us pictures.

What kind of accommodation can I hope for?

London is a very expensive city and the property market, particularly in Zones 1 and 2, is highly competitive. London is rated the third most expensive city in the world and you will not get the same value for money in London that you get in many other countries and major cities. In London, £100 will get you only get you a single bedsit or a flatshare. When looking for accommodation in central London (Zones 1 and 2) you will need to be realistic with your expectations about what you can find in your price range. If you look in Zones 3 to 6, you will generally find more affordable accomodation, as the demand is not so high.

Do you cater to clients who don't speak English?

We always have multilingual consultants in our employment who can speak French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian and more (in addition to English).

What is a 'flatshare'?

A flatshare is a property consisting of your own bedroom within a flat or house. You share a kitchen, bathroom and sometimes a lounge.

What is a 'bedsit'?

A bedsit is a property consisting of one room. You have a few cooking facilities, but share a bathroom with neighbouring tenants.

What is a 'semi-studio'?

A semi-studio is also a property consisting of one room (a cross between a bedroom and sitting room). You have your own kitchenette and shower room, but share a WC with neighbouring rooms.

What is a 'self-contained studio'?

A self-contained studio is a property consisting of a studio room, open plan/separate kitchen and separate bathroom. In other words, you don't share any facilities.
