Frequently asked questions about the Home Search Service:

Do you have access to off-market properties?

We sometimes do, but the majority of rental properties are advertised online and publicly.

We can sometimes access rental properties shortly before they are advertised, if we have already started a search for a client, and the estate agent knows what we are looking for on behalf of our client.


What is your added value compared to searching on Rightmove and Zoopla?

What does help a lot is the relationships we have built with the largest estate agents in London.

In a very competitive market, with several tenants interested in the same property, this can give our clients a major advantage to secure the home of their choice.

What happens if we don't find anything that we like?

It does happen – after a whole series of viewings, nothing suitable has appeared, or, even worse, the offer on the property of your choice has been rejected 🙁

Since our home search fees are fixed, we cannot offer an unlimited search.

However we are usually happy to set up a few additional viewings for you, within the original search criteria.

Will I be working with the same person within the Simply London team?

Absolutely! One of our fantastic team members will become your dedicated Simply London Expert. She will be your only point of contact throughout, and will be working with you from start to moving in.

What our customers say about the Home Search Service

"Moving our family to London during the pandemic seemed impossible until we started working with Simply London. The school search service was invaluable - our son started at a great school soon after arriving in the UK. We could not be happier with Simply London."

Nina V.W.

Excellent support from Simply London during an expatriation from Paris to London. Simply London helped us particularly well during our remote apartment search and lease negotiation! Thanks to the team.

Gregoire S.

Great remote search for a short term lease in London! We even got a virtual tour of the local town! Thank you thank you thank you!

Jonathan Z.

I worked with the team at Simply London on my recent London move and they were absolutely wonderful! They helped me find a new home within a week and have guided me throughout the entire settlement process. Moving abroad is incredibly stressful and I am so thankful I was able to work with this team to ease some of the stress.

Shiloh G.

Moving our family to London during the pandemic seemed impossible until we started working with Sylvie. She was incredibly thorough, organized and responsive in helping us find a house 100% virtually. We were able to go straight from the airport to our new home with all utilities and Internet already up and running.

Nina V.

We are very excited about the apartment and our move. Isabelle was fantastic and we are very grateful for her help. Her flexibility and responsiveness made it feel like she was 100% with us throughout the process, and that took a lot of the stress out of a stressful situation.

Stacy & Matthew K

Thank you simply London team for your availability and for our successful family relocation! Our children are happy with their new school, we are staying in a pleasant and very convenient area for the whole family. Your support was so efficient that we could enjoy the London life without anything major to worry about. We recommend Simply London.

Clem & FM

Simply London was essential to my family’s move. We wanted a comfortable rental with good state schools, with a reasonable commute. This required a lot of juggling: interviewing us to understand what we wanted; guiding us through the property visits, herding the various parties to execute in an expedient manner so the school application could be completed on time.

Mary W

The team at Simply London were a fantastic resource for our relocation to London. We needed assistance with everything: we needed to find a home to live in, get bank accounts setup and all the necessary living services setup. But where the team was above and beyond was in finding us a placement in a top notch school for both kids, which was close to our family home.

Dave A

Sylvie has been of great help to organise our family move to London. She understood our accommodation requirements perfectly and, thanks to her targeted research, we found the property of our dreams in one day! In addition to this, she is very friendly, responsive and pragmatic, which is just a bonus. We recommend her with great pleasure.

Myriam & Stéphane F

I wanted to thank you for your kindness, efficiency and professionalism. I was looking for a flat in London and you found me the apartment of my dreams... You supported me [in] every step of my relocation... Thank you a thousand times.

Arielle L

Newcomers to London - in a rush or too busy in particular - do not hesitate to call Simply London to help you in your London property search.


I contracted Simply London when relocating to London with two kids and little availability. The team was very professional, responsive and thanks to them everything was ready in time. They are independent from housing agencies. Sylvie was keen to share her expertise and passion for London, which turned flat-hunting into an enjoyable experience.
