This area and surrounding is a mixed lot – there are beautiful mews dotted around amongst large council blocks and estates so look hard.  The reason that I choose Kennington is that it is very close to Westminster – just over Vauxhall Bridge and you’re there.  Its very popular with professional people (including MPs) seeking a home rather than a flat to live in.  many often seek rented accommodation due to the short term nature of their employment contracts.

My friend has a 2 bed flat in Westminster and he gets £350 a week.  He has never had a problem with his tenant and I’m not surprised as this area will only attract quality tenants.  Kennington serves Westminster quite well.  Look for tenants working north of Vauxhall Bridge as these will tend to be better.

A number of loft apartments are springing up and also converted office blocks overlooking the river.  Check out Kennington Cross as this a bit more pleasant on the eye and has a number of converted flats perfect for renters.
