Get Living reviews

Really enjoying the lifestyle here – great views, staff and everything just works. Admin is minimal and a lot better than traditional tenant-landlord arrangements. Recommend this to all types of tenants – singles / students / young couples etc.” – Hleung, verified resident at Elephant Central

“My wife and I are in our 70s. We sold up a huge house to downsize and free ourselves from the burden of ownership. And what a great place to live. Masses to do, great transport for us and the grandchildren. Fantastic service from Get Living. We are just about to sign up for our second 3 year term.” – Neil H, verified resident at East Village

As one of the first residents to move into Eaat Village over five years ago, Get Living had been a fantastic landlord.

The apartment itself is great: well finished, large for the area, although the communal areas aren’t upkept as much as they should be.

Moving in was a breeze, and GetLiving are pretty quick to fix issues that are raised about the flat or other areas of the village. They’re not always super fast or forthcoming, as some issues are fixed with bodgejobs rather than fixed properly.

We’ve had some issues with loud parties late at night: noise reverbates and travels from the winter balconies, echoing around the internal courtyards.

It’s also expensive, paying at the top end of the full zone 2 market although EV is a little further out than most z2 areas. Yearly inflation rentals are fine, but we have been shocked by the amount which our contract was renewed at (and not looking forward to next year).

Overall, we’d 100% recommend East Village and Get Living.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area is great for getting into work in the city or Canary Wharf. Being so close to Westfield is great for shopping and little bits. Sainsbury’s isn’t open proper hours, which is annoying at weekends.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Facing into the courtyard is great, but bad neighbours can make it not so good.

Have lived in the east village since the beginning after moving here from Canada and the improvements and developments have been amazing. Everything is super accessible the staff are so friendly and helpful and it really does feel like home. They do their best to create a community and I am super grateful for all the fun things we get in our very own neighbourhood. I love how we have tons of green spaces, lots of recreational activities and just a good hustle and bustle without it feeling crowded and overwhelmingly. Best of all is all the transportation points.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

more garbage cans and recycling points!

I live in Pippin Mansions. East village is made up of a number of plots all have a really good standard of accommodation. There is a good mix of people and a real community feel about the place. Some residents rent through GLL or own through Triathlon. There are a number of events put on throughout the year for residents.

The build quality of the homes is good. The standard of appliances are good as too is the furniture etc. The only downside to the buildings are lack of brick walls. But this is to be expected with new properties. The plus side is the insulation is so good you never need to put the heating on. As a landlord GLL are really good and there are no deposits and they are really good with managing the tenancy.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like that there is loads of green space, good transport, good shopping. Has everything you need. I dislike the amount of building work going on around here although they try to keep the impact to a minimum. The area is turning into a bit of a concrete jungle and very sterile so if you want a homely feel then maybe it’s not for you.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The heating and water system is shared as a district. This means that you are tied into a certain company and they can set what they want fee wise. However measures have been put in to prevent un necassary hikes etc

Currently in my 3rd week of living in the East Village, having recently moved from SW London.

It’s got a very strong community feel, lots of activities going on in the surrounding area, and lots of services available within short walking distance.

Positive things to highlight are the incredibly easy transport links, and multiple options to get into central. Also most ammenities are on your doorstep or within 5/10 min walk – Sainsbury’s local, better gym, restaurants/cafes, local veg and butcher, dentist etc…

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Likes: Community feel, ambundant transport links, close amenities.

Dislikes: weekends can get quite busy due to Westfield being so close – but it’s nothing too bad
