A note from our founder
Every aspect of living in a big city has improved by leaps and bounds over the last 20 years. The only thing that hasn’t changed is renting a place to live.
Interior design that hasn’t been touched since the 80s. Endless waiting for urgent repairs. Nonsensical agency fees. Feeling trapped into leases when your circumstances change. This is the reality of what your biggest expense gets you these days.
At UNCLE we want to take the ‘lord’ attitude out of the word ‘landlord’. We’re not living in feudal times anymore and believe people deserve better. We offer a straight-talking, no-nonsense approach for renters who are tired of hard-to-reach landlords and being treated like second-class citizens. We do this by making promises that address the issues customers have told us they actually care about and back them up with consequences to us if we fail to deliver. We also spend tons of time working with world-class architects and designers to create beautiful apartments and extra spaces like gyms, sky lounges and yoga studios (for no extra charge).
Come and try us out. There are no tricks. If you don’t like the apartment, you can tear up the contract. No strings attached.

Helping Young People
Hyelm provides affordable accommodation to young people in entry level roles who would be otherwise unable to afford to rent in London’s private sector. The charity’s work helps to prevent homelessness. The partnership with UNCLE means that Hyelm residents are able to secure affordable, safe and well-managed accommodation within the private sector, once they’re ready to move on. Together we’re making a big difference in the quality of life for young people across London.
