Properly provides advice and guidance on all flexible office models. We can also provide expert advice on traditional leasehold and sub-let properties. Our flexible listings are increasing in numbers by the day but include co-working, fixed desks, private offices, virtual offices and accelerator spaces. Whatever it is you're looking for, we're pretty sure we'll be able to help. 

We believe that all companies should benefit from great office space. Rather than taking money from you guys, as with any business cash flow is critical, we take a transparent introductory fee from the operator. This is usually 10% amongst all operators to ensure we don't show preferential treatment for bigger fees. 

At present we are looking to focus on London, however there are other cities in the pipeline and are excited to venture out further than the 'big smoke'. 

This ultimately depends on the type of office you take and your companies preferences and working style. There is no one-size fits all answer unfortunately. You can use our free office space calculator to get a rough guide. With that and our expert advisors we can make sure you get the right size office for your business and future plans. 

The majority of our flexible office listings have a guide price if there are available desks, spaces or suites. For a complete quote and to find out the best rates, discounts and availability you should chat to our advisors. 

Our agents have access to 100% of the market, whilst we try and maintain correct pricing and availability this changes day-by-day. 

Again, this depends on the type of office you are moving into and the size of your business. Check out our individual guide here to find out more about the different transaction lengths. 

Per desk rates and rents differ incredibly across the UK and especially in London. Properly carries out market research every 6 months to give our clients the latest info. Find our latest research here. 

A monthly rental fee usually includes - rent, rates and service charge. It also includes and covers the fit-out and furniture. It will cover the IT and utliltes (gas, water, electricity) and cleaning, staff and other services dependent on the operator and space. 

Before entering into a space agreement with any operator, you should ensure you request a formal quotation from our agents that will list out all of the terms of the agreement. 

The whole idea of flexible workspace is that it's all inclusive. 

This depends on - 

  1. The type of office you are looking for. If you are looking for a leased office, the term will be longer. Typically with a flexible office terms tend to be for 12 months. 
  2. This also depends on the operator. Different operators and buildings will be subject to different terms. 

Generally yes. However as with the length of term, this ultimately depends on individual circumstances and the operator. With leased offices if your covenant isn't great, some traditional landlords will look for up to 6 months rental deposit. 

We try to get to as many locations and attend as many launches of new spaces as possible. Our agents also attend every viewing with clients to ask all of the right questions and ensure our clients see all of the 'important bits' of the space. 

We work with freelancers and small teams to enterprise teams with hundreds of desks. For larger enquiries it's often easier to speak to an advisor for the best options and the best deal possible.
