Village Properties is a boutique agency that delivers so much more than the normal hard sell.
Here at VP, we pride ourselves on our commitment to a first-class letting service, not only to our Landlords but also during the search for the best tenants, ensuring your property is let in the fastest time, to the right person and the best price. With over 20 years experience in the rental business, we are here to guide you through the process and help keep you on the right side of the ever-changing legislation.
Our job is to get our clients the best deal for their property – we achieve this by showcasing properties in a beautiful way and telling the story of what it’s like to live there.
The lettings market is full of empty apartments and uninspired descriptions – people looking for a home can’t visualise what it’s like to live there and they feel disheartened about renting. We aim to find the perfect tenants for our clients who will love the property as their own home.
We provide top quality photography for free, that’s personally overseen by Sam, and we always include a free floorplan too, allowing landlords to make the most of their asset and present their property in the best way, achieving the greatest possible yield.
We’re not your usual lettings agency.
We can then arrange a meeting where we will carry out a market appraisal on your property, where we will find out more about your expectations, intentions and priorities. We view renting your property as a partnership and the start of a long-term relationship. Many of our Landlords have been with us for over 20 years. We think that says it all.
We’ll explain how we work and how we can help you get the best outcome. Once you’re happy to engage our services, we will send you our Terms and Conditions for signing and we can start to prepare your property to rent.
We will give you advice on how to style your property and Sam is present at every photography shoot to ensure she gets the right shots to give your property the best possible start when it goes live on the property portals. We tell a story about the property and the lifestyle to maximise engagement with tenants.
We will do everything for you from advising on the best strategy to meeting tenants and conducting viewings, handling negotiations and tenancy progression. Nothing is too much trouble.
If you have a beautiful home and you want a perceptive agency to work for you, then we’d love to hear from you. Our team of experienced lettings staff know the market like the back of their hand. They provide the kind of service you expect and deserve.
An EPC and a floor plan will be arranged and, if you choose, a smart To Let board will be put up. Your property will be on all the major property portals, across the internet and on social media and in local print as well as sent to a database of potential Tenants.
We arrive early and make sure the atmosphere is just right; lights on, throw the doors open on a sunny day or pop the fire on for a cosy winter feel. The door is always opened to Tenants and they are welcomed “home”. Because all questions have been asked about your property we have all the information that tenants need.
We are available to lead viewings on evenings and weekends too.
We make sure you have all information about tenants and assist you on making the best decision.
When you accept an offer we won’t stop there. Our Tenancy set up fee of £360 including VAT includes the following –
NB. The cost of the Tests and Certificates will be charged separately by the respective contractor.
Beyond this initial service we offer a rent collection service as well as a full in-house property management facility.

" In an era where most independent estate agencies have been bought, sold, or merged out of existence, it is great to see a very well run independent firm with a real emphasis on putting the customer first. From the outset, Sam and her team kept me up to date on all aspects of my purchase, which was particularly stressful for a first time buyer. They handheld me through the entire process and were very responsive to my never ending queries and phone calls. May I also add that as a small outfit they are very nimble and work very well as a team. All in all it was very seamless and they all seemed to know how to progress things regardless of who was available at any given time. I would greatly recommend to anyone looking to purchase in the Richmond, Kew, and surrounding area, (their knowledge and expertise in these locations is second to none)and wish them continued growth and success.
