Our Lettings service
Our Lettings service
We provide two distinct lettings services for landlords, our “Introduction Service” and a comprehensive “Property Management” service. Both services encompass comprehensive marketing for the right tenant, obtaining tenant references, identity and credit checks as well as preparation of the tenancy agreement, pre-tenancy saftey checks and the collection of rent. However, our Property Management Service takes this through to the ongoing management of the tenancy including key holding, arranging quotes for repairs and maintenance, and much more as the table below illustrates.
We work on both long lets and short lets and have long lasting relationships with a wealth of successful relocation agents, leading blue chip companies and prestigious embassies.
Wilfords London offers a full property management service that allows landlords to maximise their return on investment without it taking up precious time, and giving peace of mind that their investments are being properly looked after by a professional managing agent.
A well-managed tenancy means a happy tenant, and a happy tenant stays longer. Around 80% of tenancies in Wilfords London managed properties extend beyond their original term, so instructing us to look after your property from start to finish is an excellent way to minimise void periods and maximise the return on your investment.
The Wilfords London Property Management team deal with a broad range of tasks that takes the challenges and frustrations of the day-to-day management of a property out of the landlord’s hands.
All the contractors we use are vetted, providing you with the peace of mind that any repairs are completed to a professional standard and at a reasonable cost. We will ensure to discuss any works and expenditure with you meaning you have total control at all times.

Tenancies running for a few weeks, up to 5 or 6 months, are called short term rentals and usually deliver a premium return when compared with a long term rental. We have a specialist Short Lets department offering expert advice to landlords seeking to fill void periods and we help vendors generate income from vacant properties being marketed for sale as well as homeowners with annexes or self-contained apartments, looking for a flexible income stream.
The majority of short let tenancies are corporate rentals or people already living in the area who are in transition. We take all the funds in advance along with a security deposit, so there’s no need to worry about the rental payments. You can also forget any concerns you might have about who’ll be living in your property, as all tenants have to pass our rigorous vetting process.
Our decades of experience working in Central London lettings means we have built some long lasting relationships with a wealth of successful relocation agents, leading blue chip companies and prestigious embassies. In fact, they often come to us for their accommodation needs first, as they appreciate our diligent, efficient and professional service.
Wilfords is a member of the Association of Residential Letting Agents (ARLA Propertymark) and voluntarily adheres to its strict Code of Conduct. ARLA Propertymark provides our Client Money Protection which safeguards all deposits, rents and other client monies held by us. We also adhere to The Property Ombudsman (TPO) Code of Practise, meaning that in the highly unlikely event that our services fail to meet expectations, Wilfords’ customers have access to the two most recognised redress schemes in our industry.
I instructed Wilfords to rent my property as I was impressed with their beautiful presentation of properties. We received regular feedback throughout the marketing period and they outperformed more established estate agents to find us some tenants. I would happily recommend Wilfords to any other landlords as their service levels and hard work are second to none.
