Hidden fees, landlords leaving you hanging, the knowledge that you'll probably never be able to get a pet... just some of the nonsense that renters are all too often forced to put up with.
Folio London does things differently. The landlord — one of London's largest, with thousands of homes at various price points across the capital — is all about championing what really matters to people who rent. Among other things, that means banishing the bugbears outlined above, and — here's the really crucial bit — giving tenants peace of mind that their home is theirs for as long as they need it.
Build to Rent
Folio London's developments, which you can find all over the capital, are all Build to Rent. That means they've been designed specifically for renters, with perks like onsite property management, cracking communal facilities, and high quality apartments created for contemporary living (no more ugly wallpaper or flimsy flatpacks!)
As you're renting with an organisation, rather than an individual, you get a whole lot more stability. Folio offers a range of flexible tenancy options and you'll never be asked to leave before your agreement's up, providing you stick to their residents' code of conduct. Any hiccups like leaky taps or noisy neighbours are dealt with swiftly by dedicated property managers, and there are never any admin charges or hidden costs — we're talking total transparency from the start.
Case in point: Oaklands Rise
Now we've covered the basics, let's take a closer look at the kind of homes Folio London has to offer. Oaklands Rise, a new neighbourhood in north west London is an excellent example and — with an exclusive move-in incentive on the horizon — this is the perfect time to discover it.
Oaklands Rise is a contemporary collection of two-bedroom apartments located in the 'Old Oak' of Willesden. Like most other Folio London properties, these homes are pet-friendly and come with the option of free furniture packages. A brand new block is launching here early next year, and if you move in between 4-31 January, you'll receive 14 days rent-free. T&Cs apply*.
Apartments at Waldegrave Point, Oaklands Rise start at £1638 a month and include access to a communal rooftop terrace and a work-from-home space. Why not be the first to view it and start your new year with a bang?
Great news for animal lovers
Not only is Folio London a pet-friendly landlord — meaning you can move in with your four-legged friend — it's also helping to keep animals all over the capital healthy by partnering with Street Vet. The animal welfare charity provides free veterinary care and services to the pets of people experiencing homelessness across the UK.
You can find out more about the partnership and donating to the charity here.
