Get Living London is pleased to reveal that we were this week announced as the first Institutional Investor backed organisation to become an ARLA (Association of Residential Letting Agents) Licensed Member.
This move further demonstrates both ARLA’s and Get Living London’s dedication to providing a professional service for everyone involved in the lettings industry.
David Cox, managing director of ARLA, said: “We’re thrilled that Get Living London has joined ARLA membership. The build to rent sector is widely seen by the industry and government to be one of the solutions in addressing the UK’s housing supply shortfall. Becoming ARLA Licensed agents has allowed Get Living London to join forces with the wider sector to raise standards and boost consumer confidence in renting.”
Get Living London Chief Executive, Neil Young, added: “It is great news for the industry that ARLA is recognising us and other institutionally-backed rental organisations as a new kind of landlord. We were the first to rent at scale from the end of 2013, with 1,439 homes at East Village E20, and see great value in working together with ARLA to create a good-quality, professionally-managed private rented sector.
“We at Get Living London pride ourselves in making renting better for Londoners and are redefining the way that people think about, and experience, renting and living in cities. We give our residents security and flexibility, and prize amazing service and long-term customer satisfaction over short-term returns. We hope that it is this approach, in collaboration with partners like ARLA, which will see renting viewed as a positive choice across the UK.”
