Rental Search & Relocation

Relocating Your Employees

The SP experience

We here at SP Property Group provide a seamless relocation service for senior executives, delivering expert advice and support to senior executives and their families to ensure that the relocation is a success.

Each assignee we work with has one dedicated relocation specialist who handles the entire process from start to finish, from initial area advice to the property viewings, all rental negotiations and the check-in and post-move process. Having one point of contact throughout ensures consistency and a seamless service.

As well as providing DSP services, SP Property Group we can also provide a full relocation package including orientation tour, shipping, pets, school search, settling in services, lease renewals and departure services.

Why we are different

We are one of the most highly regarded relocation specialists across London and Surrey. Our established relationships with the letting agents and our track record of more than a decade ensure that the assignees we represent are prioritised over other tenants and we gain them access to the best properties ahead of others.

Our corporate clients entrust us to successfully relocate their most valued employees and their families. They know they can rely on us to provide expert area knowledge and deliver a seamless, time efficient relocation experience. This ensures that their employees can focus on their new role and their housing needs are efficiently and expertly managed.

Our relocation service is provided entirely in-house, rather than using outsourced freelancers. Each assignee has one point of contact throughout the entire relocation process which enables us to deliver consistently superior service levels.

For your employees who are relocating to the UK long term, SP Property Group can also provide an in-house buying service for when they are ready to put down permanent roots.

Our track record

For more than ten years we have been successfully relocating individuals, families, domestic staff members, pets and employees from all over the world.

We are experienced at working with every situation and pride ourselves on adapting to our clients’ needs and particular circumstances. We cover all budget ranges and, once the right property has been found, we pride ourselves on our expert negotiation skills to achieve the best rental terms for our clients.

Our expertise allows us to successfully navigate the extremely difficult situations which can arise such as negotiating with unreasonable landlords, a landlord passing away 2 days before the tenancy agreement was signed, fighting our clients’ corner in competitive bidding situations and agreeing very detailed furnishing specifications.

SP Property Group are also able to help ‘sell’ the relocation proposition by providing bespoke orientation tours to give the assignee and their family the confidence to make the move. We have provided this service to numerous global mobility teams and headhunters over the years.

In recognition of the service and expertise we provide, we have been awarded many accolades including “Best Property Finder, London” at the Daily Mail Property Awards; “Property Advisor of the Year” nomination by Spear’s Wealth Magazine; Top Property Advisors in the Spear’s 500 List; Silver Award for “Best Relocation Agency” at the Letting Agency of the Year Awards and “Best Property Finder” at the Association of Relocation Professionals Awards.

What our clients say

What our clients say

Cameron and Nadia - Marriott International (Family of 5 moving from USA)

“The service I received has been first class. Knowledge of the market and local agents, and success in negotiating was outstanding, as was the handling of letting agents and my landlord. Very impressive.”

Ross - Private Bank Manager

“People often only email to complain, but what I am experiencing now is customer service on truly another level, and I feel lucky that it was your company who I have been working with.”

Sarah - United Nations

We have had a great experience. You were incredibly detail oriented and worked around the clock to ensure everything about our process went smoothly. We had a tricky situation in that we had very specific/narrow search parameters and we did everything remotely. You made sure we knew exactly what we were getting, highlighted your areas of concerns and pushed to get those things fixed and ironed out prior to us committing to the lease. You were always available for questions and kept us informed throughout the negotiation process. You were delightful to work with.

Erik - Deputy CEO of a financial research and broking firm (family of 4 relocating from the USA)

The service was super-efficient with the 30 mins phone call leading to a full day of properties to view. You were wonderful to deal with and we enjoyed your positive, professional approach to the search. We were amazed by how many properties we saw in one day. 10 out of 10!

Geoff - INEOS

Thank you and your team for all of your advice and guidance in locating and securing us a lovely flat. We were so impressed with the attention paid to our budget, location and flat preferences and the extensive list of possibles SP was able to generate - and all within a matter of days.

Larry & Peg - Former Executive Director, London investment management firm

SP turned what can be a stressful and time-consuming endeavour into a compressed and efficient process. In less than one week, you had received the mandate, sourced suitable properties for my specific requirements, shown me the properties and successfully negotiated my lease. I was in my new property one week later. I cannot imagine achieving the results I did without their assistance.

As I was about to start a new job, it was important to me that the process was quick and relatively stress-free. You provided good advice, support, useful insights and objective guidance. I would not hesitate to recommend the services to any professional looking to find the right property at the right price.
