Here at our Holland Park Lettings office we’ve seen a marked rise in levels of activity as we head into the autumn months. Relocation activity has been a predominant factor for this, but other reasons for applicants looking to rent include personal house renovations, such as basement conversions, along with other extensive remodelling projects which require time away from home.
Holland Park and Notting Hill attracts a diverse range of tenants, from bankers (due to convenient transport links to the city) through to fashion designers (the area is awash with independent fashion stores and designer boutiques); antique dealers love living close by to Portobello Road with its market and wide array of unusual antique stores, whilst families move to the area for the gardens, beautiful green spaces and fabulous state and private schooling options. We’re lucky enough to enjoy a great diversity of cultures due to the different schools (Spanish, Italian, and French to name but a few), as well as shops and restaurants serving up menus from across the globe. The number of applicants with pets has also risen and we find that dog walkers in particular are keen to move to the area in order to make the most of the green spaces of Holland Park.
We currently have a range of new stock available, despite most current tenants deciding to renew their tenancies and not feeling ready to commit to buying just yet. Do get in touch to find out how we can help, we would be delighted to hear from you.
