Introduction

Modernist housing has become increasingly popular in recent years, however, most estate agents still don’t quite ‘get it’, especially ex-council purpose-built flats. We believe that if you are a landlord of a modernist property you probably want to rent it out to like-minded tenants.

What is it?

An online platform that allows landlords to advertise their properties directly to tenants who have an appreciation for design and architecture. Landlords and tenants will be able to communicate directly — without the need for an estate agent and their commission.

Why are you doing it?

Having run the modernistestates.com blog for fun over the past five years — listing properties with architectural pedigree already on the market — we have built up a large design-conscious audience. It seemed like a natural progression to offer the opportunity for properties to be advertised directly, and for landlords and tenants to communicate directly with each other, making the whole process of renting more human.

Landlords

If you are a landlord of a modernist property and are interested in advertising it to a community of design and architecture enthusiasts, in the first instance please contact us to ensure your property fits our criteria.

Photography

We believe in order to ensure your property attracts the best tenants, professional photography is a must. We will send a photographer to photograph your home at a suitable date and time.

Creating your listing

We will upload the images and information about your property onto the website, then you do the rest.

Viewings

Once your listing is live, potential tenants will contact you via email directly. All communication between you and potential tenants, viewings, contracts and references are your responsibility. Please see our FAQ and Terms and Conditions pages for more information.

Fees

To advertise your property on Modernist Estates there is a one-off fee of £395. There are no hidden costs.

Tenants

If you are a potential tenant, please join the mailing list, and we will alert you when a new property is listed.
