Get Living reaches 3,000 operational homes milestone with launch of 275 new homes at Middlewood Locks, Salford
- Build to rent pioneer launches first new homes at biggest built to rent scheme outside London
- New residents to benefit from rent-free summer offer with no rent to pay until 1 September 2019
The UK’s leading build to rent operator Get Living, has launched its first 275 new homes at New Maker Yards within Middlewood Locks, located between Manchester and Salford. Once complete, New Maker Yards – at more than 800 homes – will be the largest build to rent development outside London.
New Maker Yards combines city living and canal side green space, with Get Living’s furnished homes and its no deposit, no fees, no hassle approach. This new build to rent neighbourhood offers secure yet flexible three year tenancies on one-, two- and three-bed apartments.
Committed to making renting as hassle-free as possible, Get Living surveyed Manchester renters to find out how to make renting easier. More than 30% said that costs were always top of the list for causing stress, so as well as no deposit to pay, Get Living is offering residents their first summer free – with no rent to pay until 1 September 2019.
Neil Young, Chief Executive at Get Living, said: “We are passionate about creating brilliant big city neighbourhoods and are proud that New Maker Yards at Middlewood Locks is our first outside London. Life at New Maker Yards means our new residents can be just eight minutes’ walk from the heart of the city yet also retreat from it; with our well-sized, stylish apartments offering canal-side living with new independent retailers arriving soon.”
New Maker Yards is Get Living’s first location outside London, where it has more than six years’ experience and is best known for supporting the growth of East Village, a vibrant new neighbourhood at the former London 2012 Athletes’ Village. The launch of New Maker Yards will take Get Living to 3,000 operational homes this year within an 8,000-home development portfolio across five big city neighbourhoods in Manchester, London, Leeds and Glasgow.
Young adds: “The build-to-rent sector is growing up fast, and for all of us involved at this exciting time it is important to uphold the highest standards. Over the last six years, the sector has gone from a standing start to 140,090 build-to-rent homes completed, under construction or in planning. It is benefitting from a shift in the perception of renting with more people seeing renting as a lifestyle choice rather than a second option to home ownership. In addition, having never charged tenancy fees and scrapping deposits in 2017, we are encouraged by the Government’s adoption of a more supportive position for renters with the passing of the Tenant Fees Act, which will see deposits capped at five weeks rent1 from 1 June.”
New Maker Yards residents will be able to take advantage of a range of communal spaces, including a residents Club Room open from Autumn 2019, which will provide space for resident events and networking, as well as a home working hub and green space.
Homes are now available at New Maker Yards, starting from £1,000 per calendar month: https://www.getliving.com/new-maker-yards 1 for properties where the annual rent is less than £50,000
