Crown House Estates offer a personalised letting and property management service run from our main hub in Southgate, North London.

As we are an Independent London Estate Agent, our focus is on you and your property needs. What sets us apart from the bigger estate agencies is that we offer a genuinely bespoke and personalised service with a smile!

Our portfolio of properties in London includes options for everyone. Whatever you’re looking for, from a studio apartment or a family home.

If you need property for under 6 months, we have a fantastic selection in some of the most desirable parts of London. So, if you need the comforts of home for just a short while, let us offer our expertise to help you find your ideal location.

Our Building Services Programme
If you already have a one or a few properties in your portfolio but don’t have the time or expertise to carry out major refurbishments, then why not consider using our Building Services Programme. We can take the headache away from you in having to project manage yourself. We can source all the required trades for your specific project and deliver a completed renovation whilst you get on with doing what you do best!

We will always alert you to any major refurbishment works at your property as part of our regular inspection service. If the walls need a lick of paint, the bathroom needs changing or the carpets could do with an upgrade, we will let you know as part of our service.

Many of our clients need more extensive refurbishment done to a newly purchased property or to reconfigure an existing one. As part of our Building Services Programme we can discuss with you the best strategy for achieving your desired rental yield. This might be partitioning a large lounge to turn a one-bedroom flat into two. Or a roof conversion to convert a house into multiple occupancy flats. We will produce a full specification of work so that you can understand exactly what’s involved structurally, financially and legally.

We can manage a project from start to finish, liaising with the multiple professions involved including structural engineers, planning officers and architects. We also have access to many London-based contractors, including expert tradesmen who can handle everything from fitting a kitchen to crafting bespoke marble tops. And once refurbishments are complete, we can even dress the property, sourcing beds, sofas and sideboards to impress prospective tenants.

Starting Or Expanding Your Investment Portfolio
If you are looking to buy an Investment Property and are struggling in how to get started, we would be happy to assist you with your specific requirements. We can help in ‘sourcing’ the property as well as assisting you with the all the legal requirements and purchasing processes. If your goal is to expand your existing portfolio and take it to next level, then we can help you do that also.

Mortgage & Insurance Services
Home Finance Centre, our dedicated in-house mortgage and protection consultants can provide various other services which go hand in hand with your property purchases. These include a full range of mortgage products and insurance services. If this is something you need, then one of our dedicated advisers would be more than happy to talk this through with you.

If you are interested in any of above services, then please get in touch.


There are many upsides to being a Landlord. Renting out properties in London remains a sure bet for regular income or for building up capital for future investments.

Whether you let out a one-bedroom flat or maintain a portfolio of properties, your responsibilities are the same - dealing with dripping taps or broken boilers, renegotiating leases and filing tax returns. Not to mention keeping abreast of an increasingly complex legislative environment.

The good news is that we can deal with all of the above and much more on your behalf.

We’ll take care of you and your property, manage all the technical details and provide you with a secure and hassle-free income.

We offer different levels of management services to cater for varying levels of involvement. Whatever your requirements, our aim is to take the time, worry and hassle away from being a Landlord.
