Formed in 2012, Essential Living is a London-based property developer with a difference: we don’t sell any of the homes we’ve lovingly built, we rent them. We’re ambitious. We want the experience of renting with us to become widely recognised as the benchmark you should come to expect from your landlord.
We know our developments are beautiful and well-located. However, we don’t sell any of the homes we’ve lovingly built, we rent them.
When you rent with us, you'll need pay an initial holding deposit equivalent to 1 week's rent to reserve the apartment. On successful application, this holding deposit then becomes part of your damages deposit. Following this you'll need to pay your first rental payment and the balance on your damages deposit; nothing more.
No administration or referencing charges
No renewal fees
No check-in or check-out fees
No professional cleaning fees when you move out as long as the apartment is as clean as the day you moved in (unless you have pets).
Please read our cancellation policy prior to applying.
Our homes are available to anyone over the age of 18 who passes our referencing and affordability checks.
We’ve turned the best space in every development into beautiful and practical shared amenities for you to enjoy privately or with neighbours and friends. Social spaces vary at each development, however residents can expect some or all of these in their development: lounge, roof terrace, fitness room, games room, dining room, library, study space.
A variety of social events will be held throughout the year. However, this is your home and we encourage residents to take the lead and use all shared spaces to put on community focused events of your own as you see fit.
