Be offers a stylish Habitat for renters

Furnishing a home is no small expense. Research by Santander has revealed that the average first-time buyer spends £3,872 on furnishing their property, while the average first-time buyer in London has to fork out an eye-watering £5,495.

Those moving into rented accommodation have the opportunity to avoid these costs by opting for homes that are already furnished.  Unfortunately, many landlords put low cost ahead of style and quality when it comes to furnishing the properties they rent out, leaving tenants with poor quality, cheap furniture that they would never choose themselves.

Residents of Be Living Ltd’s built-for-rent developments be:here Hayes in West London (UB3) and be:here East India in E14, now have an alternative.

Be’s new be:here Hayes development offers one, two and three-bedroom apartments and be:here East India offers studios, one and two-bedroom apartments, all furnished by Habitat UK.

The partnership between Be & Habitat sees each development and each apartment type reviewed in order to determine the best possible furniture for the layout/area.

“Part of the be:here Hayes ethos is to offer our residents superb homes that provide them with style and comfort, as well as an excellent location. Renting – particularly in London – has become synonymous with cheap, low quality furniture. We’re turning that on its head by working with Habitat to give renters wonderfully stylish, high quality apartments that really feel like home”

Akash Sharma, Assistant Property Manager, be:here Hayes

The Habitat furnishings complement the other conveniences of life at Be’s developments.

The be:here Hayes development, for example, has a friendly on-site team, 30 ft private gardens, generous balcony space and a communal roof terrace, the development is already proving a hit with Londoners. The welcoming attitude to sharers is also being well received, as is the fact that numerous apartments throughout the development have been designated as pet-friendly.

Spacious, one-bedroom apartments at be:here Hayes rent from £1,200 pcm. Two-bedroom homes are available from £1,450. All apartments come with a garden or balcony.
