For larger properties to rent there was a strong preference for London’s outer zones, with eight of the ten most popular areas for searches on three and four bedroom houses located in the South West and North West of London.

Annabel Dixon, spokesperson for Zoopla, comments: “It’s perhaps no surprise that Canary Wharf and the Isle of Dogs has been highlighted as a popular choice for London renters. This area has long been associated with gleaming office towers, but it is now buzzing with new restaurants, bars, shops and homes, transforming it into a sought-after destination to live as well as work. Renters searching for larger family homes in the capital showed a clear preference for the suburbs, with Colindale, Hendon and Kingsbury the most searched locations for three and four bedroom houses. These areas are ideal for young families looking for space to grow, with leafy surroundings and several well-regarded schools nearby”.
