Hear from Aleksandra, one of our Abbotsfield residents, as she speaks about her family’s experience settling into a Simple Life home.
At Simple Life, we are on a mission to create a new, higher standard of private rental housing in the UK. The private rental market has recently received significant backlash, with data released from the English Housing Survey, highlighting that almost a quarter of private rentals fail to meet decent home standards. With over 60 neighbourhoods completed across the UK, we’re creating safe spaces for families to call home.
Aleksandra found Simple Life in a search for a new home after a negative experience with a private landlord in Manchester. She was looking for a home that could offer her some peace of mind and security for her family.
After speaking with our team, Aleksandra and her family found the perfect home for them, and have settled into our Abbotsfield neighbourhood in St Helens. Placed close to a choice of excellent schools and just a seven-minute walk to the train station that offers direct services to Liverpool and Manchester, it’s the perfect location for the whole family.
Something the family is glad to have found is a comfortable space that allows them to enjoy their time together at home. Speaking to us, Aleksandra drew on her past experience to explain how the new space has transformed their lives,
“When you come home, it’s imperative that you feel safe. As a mother, it’s so important to be able to find peace of mind. Now we don’t need to worry, as we feel secure.”
Her initial attraction to the property was the quality of the build, security and clean feel which we roll out as standard across all of our properties. Since settling into the area, Aleksandra and her family have also noticed the wider benefits of being a Simple Life resident.
Noting that the neighbourhood has allowed them to enhance their sense of community, Aleksandra said that she’s finally a lot calmer. Not only is she relieved that we’ve been able to take a load off her shoulders, but we’ve also helped to significantly reduce her monthly bills too. She said:
“I pay lower bills here since the home is insulated really well. Simple Life told us that our bills would be 25% less than average, and I can say that they are.”
Helping families like Aleksandra’s is one of the reasons that we started Simple Life, and we’re delighted to hear that the family’s new home and our services have been able to offer them peace of mind.
