We are passionate about helping to find you the right rental property. Here are some of things that make our letting service unique.
Our team have been working the local London property market for over 30 years.
As an award-winning agent. We have been recognised as one of the top agents in London.
A large proportion of our business is from referrals who have recommended us to friends and family.
I am really pleased with the service that was provided by Wilkinson byrne and would certainly use them again in the future. The agent was excellent at communicating with me and responded to queries very quickly. I found him to be honest, friendly and professional throughout, and having experience with several agents over the years they are one of the best i have dealt with.
Tenant, North London
The team have been wonderful at taking care of our needs. If we have needed anything fixed, the trades men they have sent over have been great. They look after you. Not just the landlords. As a single mum, having my hands full, I know I can call Dee with any maintenance issue and she will address it. Would definitely use Wilkinson Byrne again.
Tenant, Bounds Green
Just moved into a lovely two bedroom flat. Its the first time I have let a property in London and I was happily surprised in the way the whole process was carried out by the letting team at WB. Clear communication and helpful advice from start to finish. I feel happy that they will be managing the property and i would recommend anyone that is looking to rent a property to contact WB.

You will be informed if your landlord is registering your deposit and which scheme they are likely to be using. In this situation, your landlord has 14 days to register and notify you of which scheme they have chosen to use.
