About Us

About On The House

On this site you can search for properties to buy, rent or invest in; more importantly, you can find out how to do these things quickly, efficiently and effectively.

For landlords we offer an unrivalled service throughout London and the South East. Our various schemes enable you to choose between letting to professional tenants, students, or to those in social need on benefits.

We can draw up individually tailored tenancy agreements, assist in the serving of notices, when necessary and arrange energy performance certificates, fire risk assessments – mandatory in communal areas – installation of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and gas safety certificates.  

For investors, we can recommend locations inside and outside London providing excellent returns, which are popular with tenants. We aim to avoid the dreaded voids – periods when a property is empty. Even with no income, landlords are still liable for costs, such as mortgage, service charges and building insurance and are usually also liable for council tax. Far better for a property to be rented, than to sit idle.

We can point landlords in the right direction for finance and provide an auction purchase service, filtering through properties, viewing potential properties and attending the auction with the purchaser. We manage properties over a wide geographic area and are able to assist expatriates abroad who wish to invest in bricks and mortar in their chosen part of the UK. We provide details of anticipated yields, historic capital appreciation and other relevant information.

We provide first time buyers with useful tips, to help them get a foot on the first rung of property ladder. But we are mindful of changing market circumstances. There could soon be a significant market correction – property prices in many areas have reached higher levels than purchasers can afford, with interest rates moving in an upward direction, there are significant dangers for the unwary.  Some agents have luxury offices, drinks cabinets and provide glossy property particulars. We think first time buyers and investors prefer cheaper property, whenever possible! We can give guidance on planning and development issues and have unrivalled experience in housing investment, portfolio development and local housing allowance. After more than 30 years in property, we’re still On The House!
