PerchPeek works like Tinder, inviting renters to ‘swipe’ right for properties they like and left for those they don’t. The company’s database of over 7000 properties has found that Waltham Forest is the most ‘right swiped’ borough in the capital.

This was closely followed by the South London borough of Lewisham which got renters’ hearts racing and properties in Hounslow also hit home with searchers.

Most Liked Most Disliked
Rank Borough Rank Borough
1 Waltham Forest 1 Islington
2 Lewisham 2 Hammersmith and Fulham
3 Hounslow 3 Hackney
4 Redbridge 4 Southwark
5 Tower Hamlets 5 Newham

Redbridge, previously crowned the most satisfied borough in the capital, came in fourth with 95% of properties being ‘liked’. Its excellent schools, green areas, great rail networks and easy access to major roads like the A406 and A12 helped it gain renters’ affections.

At the other end of the scale, Islington was the most disliked borough with properties there receiving a whopping 3.9 dislikes per property.

Hammersmith and Fulham was also unlucky in love with an average 3.7 dislikes per property and Hackney was left dancing on its own with 3.5 dislikes per property.

Paul Bennett CEO and founder of PerchPeek said, “The huge range of data that we collect through our AI gives us a great look at what people like and dislike and what kinds of properties suit different people.

“Waltham Forest has some wonderful locations and is in a more residential and affordable part of London for renters. It is interesting to see more central boroughs fairing less well but with rising rents and a desire for green spaces, more people are looking to areas further out but that still have great access to the city.

“What we’re typically seeing is that with high rents in Central London, tenants start searching centrally but are often unsatisfied with available options. What our AI is able to do is recommend suitable properties for searchers in areas they maybe wouldn’t have thought about historically but that still have great access to the city.”
