Chris Donovan, from the Hampton Hill branch of Snellers Estate Agents, says there is a busy rental market in the Hamptons. “It is popular with first-time renters, staff at the National Physical Laboratory — the largest employer in the area — and with families and workers from large companies such as GlaxoSmithKline and British American Tobacco.
A one-bedroom flat in a modern development rents for between £850 and £950 a month but for something exceptional it could go as high as £1,600 a month. There is strong demand from families for houses close to Hampton School and The Lady Eleanor Holles School.”
Donovan recently let a four-bedroom, double-fronted Edwardian semi-detached house within 100 yards of one of the schools for £2,300 a month. For investors, the rental yield is between four and five per cent.
