The residential owner and management company behind the former Athletes’ Village celebrates two year anniversary with a RESI Award
On the eve of its second birthday, Get Living London was once again commended at the prestigious RESI Awards taking the award for private landlord of the year. The company which manages the 1,439 private rented homes at East Village, the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village, received the award for its pioneering approach to the private rented sector.
Having won ‘Property Newcomer of the Year’ at last year’s awards, this second, more service-based accolade, recognises the company’s long-term commitment to changing the way Londoners rent, while fostering a sense of community within the East Village neighbourhood.
Get Living London’s unique position at East Village has set it apart from other PRS landlords. Open seven days a week, its Management Office in the heart of East Village provides named Relationship Managers to each resident from check-in. No fees are charged, and Get Living London offers long term tenancies with resident-only break clauses to offer a stability and flexibility that is rarely seen in this market. With annual rent increases within a contract period linked directly to the Consumer Prices Index, it is little wonder that the company was singled out as private landlord of the year at the RESI Awards 2015.
Commenting on the win, Neil Young, CEO of Get Living London, said “From the very beginning, just two years ago, we set out to change the norms of renting. We have always believed that a progressive, service-led rental offer has to be part of the future for London’s housing market. I am very proud of all that the team has achieved here at East Village and this award proves that our efforts have not gone unnoticed. In fact, as we enter our third year, this win has strengthened our commitment to making renting in London an even better experience.”
