Our goal is to give you peace of mind about your London home so you can do great things abroad.

Daniel Lees, Swift founder


Property experts you can trust

How can you rent out your own home with peace of mind, especially if you’re moving to the other side of the world? Owners living on five continents trust Swift to let and manage their southwest London properties — and all our Google reviews are excellent.

Swift was born in 2010 when Daniel Lees, an accidental landlord himself who has moved countries, offered to look after the London home of a friend who was emigrating to South Africa. Over the years, we’ve resolved thousands of callouts — once even needing to rescue a pet python from a leak.

We understand the worry of renting out the home you’ve done so much work on, and created so many memories in. We know how stressful, time-consuming and expensive it can be to deal with problems from far away. We give you peace of mind about your London home, freeing you up to do great things wherever you are in the world.

Our pledge to you

Fair fees

Everyone pays one low fixed percentage — monthly, not upfront, incentivising great service all the time

Real value

We invest in a virtual office of high-calibre people, not costly shopfronts: doing more without charging more

Personal service

We know you don’t want to let your home to just anyone, so we match your tenant to your needs

You have control

We give you expert advice on a choice of cost-effective solutions, but the final decision is yours

Our gift for you

For me, the most important qualities of a property manager is integrity and trust, especially when we are over 9,000km from our property. On these grounds I would make Swift again my first choice.
