Don’t just take our word for it!

Moving to London from their home in Nepal at the start of the year to begin their university studies, sisters Tsering and Dechen initially moved into an Airbnb, sharing with two other couples.

Starting their rental search online, the duo came across a listing for L&Q’s private rental homes at Barking Riverside, and immediately registered their interest for a two bedroom apartment. They went to view it just a few days later.

What is Private Rented Scheme?

L&Q’s Private Rented Scheme offers London’s widest selection of quality Private Rental homes, all of which are owned and managed by us as the landlord. Located in numerous well-established neighbourhoods across the capital, L&Q’s private rent properties are available to anyone, provided you meet the minimum eligibility criteria.

As London’s most experienced landlord, we offer good value, stability, quality, and choice to the Private Rented Sector, which has historically been dominated by individual landlords. We launch new build homes, as well as offer preloved homes for rent across the capital.

Am I eligible for an L&Q private rental home?

Our homes across the capital are available to anyone who meets our eligibility criteria – this is our way of ensuring you can afford to live comfortably in your property. There are a couple of things we check before agreeing a tenancy. These include:

  • You must have the right to rent – this is proven through possession of British/ EU/EEA Citizenship or a valid UK residency visa.
  • Be able to meet the minimum income and affordability standards for the development or home you are interested in – this can vary across our portfolio, so ask one of our team for more information.
  • You mustn’t have a history of bankruptcy, county court judgements (CCJs) or Individual Voluntary Agreements (IVAs).
  • You mustn’t have an adverse rental history such as previous rent arrears or damage to property.

Register your interest for the release of our next phase in April 2024.
