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

Nice area with good property standard

Happy with the standard of apartment and also happy with the agent Claire who dealt with my moving in process she made it very easy to move in and gave me a good experience. The price of the apartment was reasonable especially with the 2 weeks free rent option it made things easier for me

I would not recommend it for rental given how rent and poor experience for residents.

Design is decent, thought here are elements that could be improved. I would definitely not buy a property in this building given the standards of construction and number of faults.
Good community lounge area on the 3rd floor, some social events organised by management, not enough elevators for that amount of apartments.

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

Good location, fair concept about no deposit if you meet credit rating criteria, flexible notice period, however absolutely unprofessional management abusing residents rights . Although it is a relatively new building there are repairs and construction work happening all the time that disrupts residents living. Lots of foreign students living here rather than actual London residents which does not help to create a truly lasting community. High turn over of residents due to poor experience

Wonderful Flats with Terrible Service

The development and flats are a story of two experiences. The flats are lovely, with lots of light and space. I’ve lived here for 5 years and loved my flat.

However, if anything goes wrong, the service is terrible at fixing it. It has took 18 months to repair a pane of glass on my patio, three times to get a previous tennant dropped off confidential emails and more than 2 months to get a replacement set of keys. The Get Living staff are all individually polite to deal with, but largely unresponsive when it comes to responding to emails or getting things done. The only prompt responses are when they need things or to let us know about other events in the village.

I wouldn’t discourage someone from living here, but I would think very hard about your tolerance for bad customer service.

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

There are amazing transport links, shops and space to enjoy. The bars in Hackney Wick and the Westfield are both really convenient.

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

The way the rental company responds to issues.

What is the best feature of your home:

The light and space of the flats. In the morning the light coming through is lovely.

Hi Cole82,

Thank you for taking the time to feedback, and glad to hear you love your apartment and life in the village. I am so sorry to hear of your customer service experience, as we do pride ourselves on this, however I can see we have fallen short here. If you’d like to discuss further please do drop me a line at hello@getliving.com.

Very best,

Sophie Danes

Very good

Development is lovely, looks great, is cosy and modern. Looks like it would be a good social place to live. It was great customer service from the development and was very friendly. Explained all the development and prices thoroughly and answered any questions we had.

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

Transport links seem out the way and no restaurants except fast food close. Sainsbury’s is close which is useful.
