Before we left Sydney we had been researching the rental market in London for about 6 months, which is really hard to do online because how can you ever really trust the photos? So we decided to engage London Relocation Services to help us find a place. I must say the service was very good and took a load of pressure off us. They interviewed us for about an hour to ascertain what we were looking for and then they set off to search for suitable properties.
So on Monday 14th, we got up early ready for our big 'Viewing Day' and headed out to Ealing where we met our agent and our very own car and chauffeur for the day!
We saw about 15 properties from Ealing to Wimbledon. Yes it was exhausting. Yes it was overwhelming. But yes, we found a place we like. Hooray. London Relocation Services negotiated the terms of the lease for us and secured the property for us, so all we have to do is pay the money, pick up the keys, and move in.
