Landlords in London: Why to Choose Homefinders

Homefinders have offices throughout East London including Bethnal Green E2, Hackney E8 and Stratford E15. After 25 years, we’re still very much a family-owned business and the personalised nature of our services provide distinct benefits for local landlords who are looking for suitable tenants to rent their properties on a short or long-term basis. The increased desirability of the East London area means we now have a large portfolio of clients waiting to rent properties from people like you.

We initiate our services by ensuring properties are always priced accordingly. Our letting agents continually research market conditions in Hackney E8, Stratford E15 and East London to ensure landlords receive rents that are reflective of other properties in the area. We help to organise deposits and payments, obtain references and find the most suitable tenants from those currently registered with Homefinders.

Because we alert prospective tenants of availability before news of a vacancy reaches the wider property management marketplace, landlords who choose our letting agents have the opportunity to fill their properties at the earliest possible stage. This ensures that your investment continues to generate an income instead of sitting empty. Homefinders can arrange viewings, guarantee on-time payments, provide free and accurate valuations, market your property and optimise your potential income.

While we do have scheduled opening and closing times, we understand that some landlords in Hackney E8, Stratford E15 and the surrounding East London area won’t be able to visit us during normal office hours. Our letting agents are always able to arrange anytime appointments that tie in with your own personal schedule.

Capture the imagination of new tenants today by registering with Homefinders. We’ll add your property to a full colour brochure that is distributed to major property letting websites for publication. We also send details to registered clients who are looking for the type of property you have on offer. Landlords in the local East London area are always assured of a first-class service and a hassle-free experience with Homefinders.

Rent on time

What happens if your tenant pays late? Do you pay your mortgage or does your mortgage company charge you for non payment and enter a note on your credit record? If you can’t afford a single late payment, then rent on time is for you. We will pay you even if we haven’t received the payment, guaranteed.


Many agents are not registered and have no dedicated training programme or accreditations to do their job. In absence of government legislation, Homefinders have stepped up to the mark and are members of organisations such as NAEA, ARLA and registered with The Property Ombudsman, London Landlords Accreditation Scheme and ISO9001 to demonstrate quality management. We aim to offer our customers the best.

Enjoy bulk buying power (discounts)

In a number of services, like Building Insurance, rent guarantee and building contractors we get discounts as bulk buyers of these services. These discounts are then transferred to you so you pay less for all these services.

Free accurate valuation

When we appraise your property, we will not short change you by undervaluing. We will not flatter you with an over valuation. We will give you an honest market appraisal at our point of visiting and back this up with market comparable and properties that have been let. After this, we agree on a marketing strategy and price that suits your needs and will be most beneficial for you.

Anytime appointments

Although our opening hours are 9-6.30pm Monday to Friday and 10-4pm on Saturdays our negotiators will fit you in if you cannot make the appointments within these hours. All our appointments are accompanied.

Capture your tenants attention

Property Descriptions are written by a published author in the property field. Instead of focusing on hard, cold facts, we focus on the emotional Unique Selling Points (USPs) of your property which makes a huge amount of difference for buyer enquiries. We put all this in a colour brochure, submit to all the major websites instantly and send to our registered applicants bringing you that step closer to a let.
