Cleo McKay says Vauxhall’s rental market attracts civil servants, spooks working at Vauxhall-based MI5, doctors working at St Thomas’ Hospital and people coming over to work at Google in Victoria as well as the “pink pound”.  Renters expect to pay between £1,250 and £1,500 a month for a one-bedroom flat although prices for a flat with a river view could be as much as £2,000 a month and as much as £2,400 a month for a two-bedroom flat.

“St George’s Wharf is very popular with what we call the “googlers”; they start by taking a short-term let in the development; then they either take a longer-term let or look elsewhere in the area.”

Houses are less common, although Cleo McKay says she has recently let an immaculate four-bedroom house to a family with grown up children in Heyford Avenue for nearly £3,500 a month and she has a house available to rent on Fentiman Road for nearly £3,900 a month.
