About Homesearch Properties

At Homesearch Properties we know the local property market. Since 2000 our professional and friendly agents have been helping people like you with all of their needs, from buying or renting new homes to selling properties.




I have been a solopreneur and property wealth creation and management professional for over 20 years and have a well-established operation to source, buy, refurbish, let, manage and resell properties within London and the M25 for myself and other UK based and international clients.

With a background in Quantity Surveying, Property Valuation and Property Law, my clients can be sure that every care is taken to source the kind of properties that will maximise their ROI and help them in their journey to financial freedom. As part of my service I also ensure that properties comply with the extensive regulations required for lettings.

Once acquired we can also offer client’s a full management service and, if needed, an introduction to our rental list which is comprised of high-end executives, diplomats and international personnel re-locating to the UK.

I believe that customer care is paramount and goes far beyond just matching people to properties. Homesearch Properties is a highly respected brand where clients can be confident in the services I provide and the care that they receive.

Aside from my interest and passion in property, I love cooking, travelling, supporting local community and business initiatives, mentoring teens and promoting and supporting music projects in Africa.

Right to Rent Consultant

As an immigration consultant, I bring 12 years’ experience working as a front-line Arrest Officer in Immigration Enforcement, part of the Home Office that enforces UK immigration control.

During my time as an Immigration Officer I saw first-hand how rogue landlords work – often exploiting nationals from the countries they themselves come from.  I have also seen the destruction to property that can be caused when a warrant to enter has been granted to immigration arrest teams enforcing the law on rental properties.

I am a landlord myself and know that keeping up with all the compliance can feel overwhelming – on top of that, there are the right to rent immigration checks required by law, fines for which have crept up and can be as much as £10,000 if served on a house of 4 tenants found without the right to rent in the UK.

Since leaving the Home Office I am now passionate about ‘compliance over enforcement action’ – and support private landlords and businesses to get their paperwork in order, avoiding any unnecessary upset or painful fines.

I am enjoying supporting Homesearch Properties.  I get to do what I do best and ensure all tenant’s documents are thoroughly checked.  Referencing my in-depth country-specific knowledge, I have been able to offer Homesearch Properties advice and guidance, especially through the recent Brexit transition period.

As a landlord there will always be challenges, as a consultant, my aim is to make these less of a burden.  Bring on the next challenge Homesearch Properties!

Tonu has been amazing from the start. Through what was a difficult and stressful period, Tonu made the process simple and took the lead and gave great advice and assisted me throughout the whole process. Would highly recommend.

This is our family’s second stay at Cedar Lodge. We love coming back to this apartment as it really feels like home. It is spacious enough for our family of 4 adults and is also conducive for us to work remotely when we had to. The property is just a stone’s throw away from both the underground and overground. From the stations, we could easily get around London very quickly. Very close to the property are also an abundance of amenities… barbers, laundromat, supermarkets, pharmacies, local stores and, of course, restaurants serving a variety of cuisines. Tonu, who is very welcoming and helpful, is very quick in responding to our queries and always tries her very best to provide us with what we need. We thoroughly enjoyed both our stays there and definitely look forward to staying there again!

Tonu has been fantastic from beginning to end, supportive and understanding of a tenants needs and reality. She ensured we were involved with check in and check out inventory and took the time to chat things through with us and involve us in any decision. She also has been extremely fair at a time where housing costs are rising. We look forward to reaching out again when moving back to London!

Tonu at Homesearch Properties has been the best. I’m an overseas landlord and have been bitten by contractors who have charged me a substantial amount of money and provided a below standard refurbish with a mountain of things going wrong once they left which had to be rectified. Tonu came on the scene and took over for me. She is super responsive and attentive to mine and my tenant’s needs. She seeks to get the best contractors at the best price for me. She’s truly been a blessing since I’ve been introduced to her. If you want a quality service by a professional agent please try Tonu at Homesearch, they’re truly wonderful. P.S. she also thoroughly research the tenants and won’t just place someone in your property just to receive the commission, she seeks to protect your asset!

Tonu from Homesearch Properties was fantastic throughout. She was highly professional, responded to queries almost immediately and offered great advice when asked. She manged to find me tenants with a guarantor that passed the credit check so that I was able to purchase rent and legal protection insurance. The rent she managed to achieve was very high despite the present climate. Her fees were very competitive compared with other agents. Why would you use anyone else for letting your property!!!
