UrbanCo is the UK’s most comprehensive search app for finding your next rental home.
Search through all of the 10,000+ rental homes and rooms on the market in London listed on Zoopla. But there's much more to this app!
UrbanCo gives you a more powerful search by allowing you to refine by lifestyle factors such as commute time, and proximity to facilities you care about.
Search is finally collaborative. Whether it is your family or your friends you are living with, link your searches together and you can all have an input on finding your new place (add ratings, share photos, etc.).
And you can also drive down your search time significantly by hiring a Sherpa who does all the work for you!
With the UrbanCo app developed by The Urban Collective, you can:
- Find a property to rent in London based on your lifestyle choices such as commute times or proximity to schools, parks, hospitals etc.
- Add commute time for multiple people per search (e.g. if you are sharing the property with your friends or family, find property results in areas that match everyone’s commute requirements)
- See properties across London based on your lifestyle criteria, not just a specific postcode
- Define your personalised top 3 search criteria or deal breakers; rate each property that you shortlist or visit on these criteria
- Create multiple Shortlists; comment, take photos or videos, and add ratings for each property (before and after the viewing)
- Share your shortlist, comments and ratings, in real time, with your friends, family, colleagues, etc. We call them your tribe members!
- Chat with your tribe to coordinate viewings, share opinions, etc.
UrbanCo helps you to finalise your new rental property more quickly:
- Always know which properties are your best options based on all tribe members’ ratings and opinions
- For extra support, sign up with a Sherpa – your personal concierge who can do all the heavy lifting for you (search, coordinate with agents, organise viewings)! So you can focus on being the superstar that you are, and get a professional to help find you your dream home!
Think of UrbanCo as your personal social network for property search.

Ratings and Reviews
Wish I had known about UrbanCo app earlier!
Love the fact that you can search according to your lifestyle criteria, which means the app suggests areas that could match your needs rather than you having to already "know". Found this especially useful as we are new to London. Really saves you time by selecting listings relevant for you. Would definitely recommend!
Thanks for your feedback Chrys112! Please do recommend us to any of your friends who are looking for a flat to rent in London!
Loved the simplicity of the app allows me to search my next rental property with ease, excellent..priceless!
We are really glad you find the app useful! Happy house hunting!
