Having worked with London & Partners for a number of years, IMA Relocation has been designed specifically for international companies who are setting up a business in the UK and who want a personal home finding service for employees relocating to London.
We are independent of letting agents and estate agents and, as such, we provide a completely unbiased service. Our approach is personal, we always meet our customers face to face so we can get to know specifically what they're looking for and then recommend areas which meet their criteria.
All flats and houses are visited and vetted by IMA before they are introduced to our clients and our fees are capped at 5 days at a maximum cost of £3,000 per property (as opposed to first month's rent, which a lot of other agencies charge), this approach guarantees that we will always negotiate the best price for you!
We also offer a comprehensive school search service and accompany you on school tours to help you choose the right school for your child.

Type of company
- We Search - IMA offers a high quality relocation service for international clients looking to rent property in London. We know exactly how to assist private individuals and employees with the perfect location. After understanding your precise requirements we carry out an extensive search using all sources available to us. This includes a comprehensive list of letting agents across central and greater London. We explore the type of property you are looking for; its size, location, proximity to amenities together with your budget.
- Area Orientation - If you are unsure of which area you would like to rent a property we are happy to take you on a tour of areas we think will suit your requirements before our search process begins for a nominal charge.
- We Shortlist - Once the properties have been personally vetted and a short list drawn up we will organise viewings for you over a 1 day period, if possible, until you find the perfect home.
- We Negotiate - Once your accommodation has been found we begin negotiations with agents working to secure the best possible terms for you, giving you time to focus on your move. Unlike most relocation agents we don't charge a month's rent as our fee and so you can rest assured that we will be getting you the best price possible. We will arrange the Tenancy Agreement, complete a full inventory with the Agent on the landlord's behalf and transfer utilities into your name.
We charge a day rate of £600 per day + VAT and we ensure your search is completed in as few days as possible. Monies are due 14 days after the Tenancy Agreement has been signed. There is no registration fee and search fees are capped to a maximum of 5 days for a property search and 8 days if the search is to include schools.
On completion of your lease
If you require your tenancy to be extended we will negotiate this for you with the Agency for a flat fee of £600. When you're ready to depart and vacate the property we will liaise with the agent/landlord on your behalf throughout the departure process, arrange cleaning contractors, conduct a thorough search of Inventory reports, negotiate and agree dilapidation costs enabling the return of your deposit and organise utility disconnection. This is at a cost of a 1 day fee of £600.
If a family is relocating and schools are needed, IMA is proficient in finding schools. Once again, we talk to the Executive to find out exactly what type of school they are ideally looking for taking into account age, gender, any religious denominations, special talents, preference for mixed or single sex schools and if an international school is preferred to a school following a UK curriculum.
We conduct a thorough search and visit schools which have spaces and meet the criteria and after visting them we will arrange tours and meetings accompanying the Executive and his/her partner. We will also provide Government OFSTED reports on each school.
