Scraye began with a simple mission: to make renting simple, fast and transparent.
Our story began on a rainy day in mid-2019 in the back of an old taxi in Frankfurt. A team member needed to find a new home, and fast - his lease in London was expiring in 10 days and between long hours at the office, work trips and other distractions, he was quickly running out of time.

Scraye is a next generation rentals platform. For tenants, it’s the simplest way to rent great homes. For landlords, it’s the only all-inclusive way to let. We’ve also taken the chance to cut market fees 60% and build a service people actually enjoy.
We’re launching soon in Fitzrovia, Marylebone and Soho by partnering with a select list of landlords and premium properties. We’re running out of space fast and only have capacity for a handful more landlords to sign up. If you are interested in listing your property for the launch, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit scraye.com/landlords.
If you are a tenant, you can sign up online for a sneak peek preview and early bird perks.
