Rent a Home 

with AlivePlaces

in one of the world's most diverse and creative cities

Imagine a place

where renting a home is a choice, not a financial necessity.

 

A place where it is easy to connect and make friends, yet still enjoy privacy.

A place where you can be yourself and feel at home. 

 

A place where Londoners can feel secure and choose to live and rent for the long term.

A place that is alive with nature, creativity and culture.

 

Rethinking how we live.

We’ve been inspired to look at renting with fresh eyes, unconstrained by traditional thinking and receptive to new ideas to solve the housing crisis. We have taken the viewpoint of the people who live and work in our buildings to identify a financial model that works for everyone, builds trust and creates truly sustainable communities.

Most developers are driven by short-term thinking resulting in buildings designed to meet the needs of investors rather than people. We are not here to sell and run. As a team, we have over 100 years of experience of residential development behind us and we are united by our shared purpose of 'Making Living Better'. 

This means taking the long-term perspective in everything we do and placing the wellbeing of our residents at the core of our business model. Instead of seeing renting as a temporary solution we aspire to create places that many of our residents and members will never want to leave.

 

The Joy of Belonging

 

We encourage our residents to treat our buildings as ‘their home’ - to personalise their private spaces with their taste in decoration and welcome those with pets and children. We also offer long term tenancies that provide genuine security of tenure, rewarding residents who care and contribute most within the community.

Our homes and places will provide:

 

  • a mix of homes for between one and four residents rather than ever smaller and inefficient studio and one bed ‘units’;

  • a rent that is affordable on median London earnings, with up to 35% of homes affordable for those earning less;

  • long-term, secure tenancies;

  • homes that tenants treat and think of as their own;

  • a welcoming on-site presence to help build a sense of community;

  • space for working as well as play;

  • places for socialising and relaxing with neighbours;

  • conveniently located, modern, environmentally friendly and well-designed buildings;

  • mental and physical wellbeing;

  • a diverse community of all ages and backgrounds that has chosen to make ALIVE PLACES their home.

We’ve been inspired to look at renting with fresh eyes, unconstrained by traditional thinking and receptive to new ideas to solve the housing crisis. We have taken the viewpoint of the consumer to identify a financial model that works for everyone, builds trust and creates truly sustainable communities. 

Being part of it

Our financial model is different, relying on the stable income of rent and viewing the properties as security for financing rather than assets to be sold. Because our financing is long term, so is our investment approach. Delivering homes slowly or creating a land bank serves us no purpose; we are motivated to create investments that produce an income – that means building homes quickly and efficiently.

 

Affordable housing is part of our model, not just a token add-on, as it makes good long-term social and business sense.It makes even better sense to create a product that is truly driven by market demand – the residents of the home, not the investor. This approach results in homes that people and communities have been wanting and needing for years. Homes that meet the needs of all social groups and build cohesive and vibrant communities.

Our model is ideal for patient and risk adverse investors such as insurers and pension funds. We aim to provide flexibility, enabling people to invest in individual properties or be part of a co-investment of funds. We can also accommodate land owners interested in exchanging their land for an interest in the long-term investment.
