MP Service: 2015 Assistance Available

Winkworth’s popular MP Service was first created in 2010 in collaboration with retired senior MPs from Britain’s major parties. The service has been praised as a discreet and streamlined portal that provides much-needed property assistance to Westminster’s newest recruits. Following the creation of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) in 2009, tighter guidelines were introduced restricting parliamentary allowance use to rental properties and hotel bills rather than in contribution towards the purchase of a second home. Members who have relocated to London can once again access our expert advice and range of high-quality rental property in and around Westminster. The House of Commons is now composed of 330 Conservative seats, 232 Labour seats, 56 Scottish National Party seats and 32 seats belonging to smaller parties. Like every general election, all parties have welcomed a new take of faces into its London chamber: the Conservative party and the Labour Party gained 74 and 53 fresh faces respectively, while 56 new SNP members travelled down to the capital. This recent intake will face many challenges during the next five years, not least finding a place to live. Winkworth recognises the need for MPs to secure rental accommodation quickly within the right area of London. We utilise our expert district knowledge and industry advice to deliver a hassle-free, one stop shop service in one of the most competitive property markets in the world. We take the time to drive the MP to a selected property for inspection and to process a move quickly once a property has been chosen. Approved budgets have been set out by IPSA and contracts have been issued and pre-approved by IPSA on the member’s behalf. This preparation will prompt a quick and hassle-free experience that incorporates allowances for associated living costs and dependent allowances.
