Renting guide: Harlesden

As Harlesden is becoming better known, this area is growing in popularity with renters.
The local private rental market is not particularly active, possibly because yields are lower than average, ranging from 3.3 per cent to just over four per cent for houses, and about five per cent for flats.

However, letting agent Philip Johal, of Camerons Stiff’s rental department, says the area is becoming more popular with buy-to-let investors who see the potential for capital growth. “There are some fine houses where owners have taken a lot of trouble to restore the original features, and as the area becomes better known it is growing in popularity with renters”.

One-bedroom flats rent from around £1,100 a month to £1,407 a month. A one-bedroom flat is available in Manor House, a new development in Manor Park Road, with a balcony and 24-hour porter for £1,408 a month.

Two-bedroom flats range from £1,200 a month to £2,000 a month. In West Ella Road there is a two-bedroom flat - one single bedroom, one double - in a Victorian converted house for £1,248 a month. 

Rental houses are a rarity, but a three-bedroom house in Rucklidge Avenue, close to the town centre, is available for £2,000 a month.
