After a more... rewarding renting experience here in London? It might be time to get acquainted with Get Living. These guys are pioneers in the Build-to-Rent sector, developing and managing award-winning neighbourhoods just for renters in the capital and elsewhere in the UK.
What makes them so special, you ask? A whole range of perks designed to give tenants the freedom and peace of mind they deserve, for a start. Plus, Get Living's properties are all situated in genuinely desirable parts of the city, that make both commuting and your social life a breeze.
With Get Living, the perks begin before you even move in. There's no need for a security deposit, as long as you pass referencing and meet the T&Cs. You'll also get to decide whether you want a furnished or unfurnished home — no more last-minute dashes to IKEA for you — and choose between three types of finishing.
What's more, you'll have the freedom to decorate your new home according to your tastes. Because why shouldn't renters get to unleash their inner Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen from time to time?
All Get Living homes have wifi included, and neighbourhoods benefit from 24/7 security, secure key card entry and on-site maintenance teams who you can call on with a few taps on their app.
Longer tenancies with residents-only break clauses are available to give you both security and flexibility, plus there are all sorts of resident events and shared facilities to help you connect with your community. Oh, and pet-friendly homes are available at no extra cost.
While all these perks come as standard, each Get Living neighbourhood has its own unique character. Read on to find out which one best suits your lifestyle.
Located close to Stratford International in Zone 2/3, with 25 acres of green space and wetlands on its doorstep, this east London offering is great for both nature lovers and those who thrive off of the buzz of the city. There are over 30 independent retailers onsite, and Westfield shopping centre is just next door.
East Village is great for singles, couples, sharers, and families alike — with schools, healthcare services, and plenty of parks nearby. Plus, there are literally hundreds of free events, groups and clubs for residents.
Like to keep active? There's an outdoor gym and secure bike storage, which makes cycling a breeze.
Ok, so technically this one isn't a neighbourhood in its own right, but the latest addition to East Village is so special that it deserves its own shoutout.
Portlands Place has a completely unique Skybridge on the 10th floor which boasts its own wellness suite, co-working space, cinema screening room, and a residents-only gym where you'll get free weekly classes.
Like to host dinner parties? You'll love the Come Dine With Us Kitchen: a bookable space for cooking and entertaining with access to one of two roof terraces and incredible city views. It can accommodate up to 25 guests.
Fancy living in Zone 1? Check out Elephant Central, just a 10-minute tube journey from Oxford Circus and within walking distance to Waterloo. That means you can expect unbeatable views and a fantastic range of indie retailers and eateries at nearby Castle Square, plus the Mercato Metropolitano food hall is just a short walk away.
Again, there are free events, groups and clubs just for residents, plus secure bike storage and a residents-only club room.
This is just the start of what Get Living has to offer, though. There are more neighbourhoods to come in London, plus developments in the likes of Birmingham, Leeds, Maidenhead and Glasgow are in the pipeline (and there's already one in Manchester!).
