Loft City! Finding decent lofts and warehouse conversions to rent has always been incredibly difficult. The people who own them tend to have bought them as a real home and not as an investment, so the chance of them coming to the rental market is very slim.
We have always had a huge demand from people looking for these kinds of properties to rent and we rarely have enough to satisfy even 5% of that demand. But as luck has it, we have just been instructed to market a considerable investment holding of lofts for rental – mainly around the City fringes and also a few further afield. They will be coming to the market, starting now and gradually over a period of months, but from what we have seen, it is going to be a real joy.
We put the first one on our website in Curtain Road in Shoreditch at 4.45pm today (Thursday 24 Oct) and within 8 minutes exactly, the phones were buzzing and it was let by 5.25pm!! We have just put up the details of a perfectly formed studio loft in New Inn Yard, EC2 for a bargain £375 per week, which we don’t think will last long. Also, there is a wonderful contemporary two bed loft style unit in a conversion on Hoxton Square for £750 per week.
If you happen to be lucky enough to own one of these kinds of spaces – anywhere in London – and are considering letting it out anytime in the future, please do contact us as we know a significant bunch of loft admirers desperate for the opportunity to rent one, whether it be £350 per week or £3,000pw.
