Lanigan Estates Ltd have managed the property we have been living in over 4 years. They are thoroughly professional and responsive in all their dealings relating to the property. I highly recommend them.
I have had a really good experience with Lanigan Estates Ltd while I was living in Battersea. From the very first moment they have shown me to be really helpful, quick to respond to my emails, answering all questions and providing all information requested in a very accurate and professional manner.
I truly recommend this agency, which has been the best I approached so far in my flat hunting.
I would like to say how impressed I have been with Lanigan Estates – you have been by far the best estate agents I have come across in London. I would not be leaving the house if it wasn’t for the change in my job, and hope that the house continues to be a great place to live for the future tenants.
Many thanks in advance for your help.
I just want to say that your service has been over and above any expectations and you have relaxed me so I can enjoy my weekend
THANK YOU 🙂

I find dealing with Lanigan Estates Ltd very easy, friendly and professional. I live and work outside the UK and needed to have someone who is efficient in dealing with my queries and is able to respond to my emails promptly. I am extremely happy with the service I receive and the ethical value of honesty in managing my property.
