District line lures first-time renters, says our south west London letting agents

Much has been written about first-time buyers and their journey to get on the property ladder, especially in London. However, the first-time renter in the capital is often overlooked, say our south west London letting agents. For many young people moving out of home for the first time or fresh from university, the desire to live in the capital - especially in the south west corner - is overwhelming. However, the issue of affordability is often compounded in London due to young professionals needing to commute across the capital but we have a fantastic combination here - a good selection of affordable flats to rent in south west London and a fantastic tube service provided by the District line (the green one, in case you work on colours!). The District line is one of the best connected, with the route running from Wimbledon and Richmond, stopping at Sloane Square, Westminster, Embankment, Cannon Street, Blackfriars and Whitechapel among others, before heading out towards Essex. For first-time renters there are a number of studio and one-bedroom apartments close to south west London's District line stops. Providing a great entry point into the London rental market, flats handled by Winkworth south west London are of a high standard and many are set within pretty period houses. Here's our selection of brilliant roads near to District line Tube stations, where it's possible to secure a flat to rent in south west London for less than £400 a week. Flats to rent in Wimbledon - the streets off Worple Road towards Wimbledon shopping centre are all within a short walk of the Tube station. Spencer Hill, Denmark Avenue and Thornton Hill are all great places to search. Pitt Crescent is also home to flats in converted properties. Flats to rent in Richmond - St John's Road, Catherine Drive and Larkfield Road all remain popular with first-time tenants as they offer affordability close to the underground and national rail station. Flats to rent in Parson's Green - Parson's Green is full of period conversions and character apartments. Some of the very best can be found on Bloom Park Road, Dancer Road, Crookham Road, Mimosa Street and Epple Road. Flats to rent in Fulham - cross the river at Putney Bridge and you'll reach Fulham. Fulham Broadway Tube station is right next to the area's biggest retail centre, which is an added bonus. There are some beautiful four-storey Victorian properties that have been converted into flats lining roads such as Haldane, Tournay, Epirus, Mirabel and Fabian. Flats to rent in Putney - The cluster of streets off Oakhill Road present some fantastic red-brick terraces that have been sympathetically converted into flats.
