Traditional renting is out. A better way of living is in.
With a revolutionary approach to modern living, known as BTR, you get so much more than four walls; you get a living experience and a social space that caters to your every need.
Whether you’re looking to rent for six months or two years, you can expect more from your home than ever before. Think stunning spacious apartments, social areas, all-inclusive facilities and a new level of convenience and luxury – all with exciting extras designed with your wellbeing and happiness in mind.
This flexible approach to renting gives you access to prime city locations in places like Manchester, Sheffield and Cardiff, where modern, affordable, pet-friendly apartment living opens up a world of possibilities.
City Living Reinvented
An alternative to conventional rentals, where landlords offer property and nothing else, BTR offers a resident -oriented lifestyle. Alongside stunning apartments and a welcoming community that feels like home, this style of city living offers all-inclusive facilities, regular clubs, social events, and exciting experiences to create lasting memories and connections with new neighbours and friends.
Benefits of Modern Renting
This style of living provides a strong sense of community and belonging. From the moment you walk out of your apartment, you’ll have access to everything from coworking spaces to gyms and roof decks. Whether you’re keen on a night in or a lively hang out with friends, you can do it all without leaving home.
Enjoy urban living in prime locations with easy access to transportation, entertainment, and dining options. This means you can enjoy all your city has to offer without the hassle of a long commute or searching for a good restaurant.
Discover the perfect balance between style and comfort with interior-designed apartments. Whether after a furnished or unfurnished space, you’ll find stylish finishes in every room and all the conveniences you could need in a home.
Family sticks together, that’s why modern apartment rentals have pet-friendly policies. There’s no need to compromise on how and where you live when your favourite furry friends are welcome.

How can I book a Fresh home?
- You’re welcome to view any property you have your eye on with no oligation, and, when you’re ready to book, how-to guides are provided by the team to explain each step of the booking process.
- Conveniently, you can complete the majority of your booking online, and once your booking is complete you will receive access to a resident app so you can see all your details in one place on your account and make easy payments.
How does a reference check work?
Before renting a property, a reference check is done to ensure affordability, background history and the Right to Rent. During your application process, you will be asked to provide information such as:
- Proof of identification
- Your employer’s details
- Your current and past address
- Recent payslips or trading accounts if you are self-employed
- There may be additional sanction checks within the process, but not always.
Will I pass a reference check?
Before the referencing process is started, you will typically be asked a few questions. Answering no to these questions means you are unlikely to be moved on to a reference check:
- Do you have a clear credit file?
- Are you solvent?
- Do you have the Right to Rent in the UK?
How do I know if I need a guarantor?
You may need a guarantor if you don’t earn at least 2.5 x the annual rent value of your chosen property. For example, if your monthly rent is £700, you must earn at least £21,000 per year before tax. If not, a guarantor may be able to help you.
Who can be a guarantor?
To be a guarantor, you must:
- Be a UK homeowner
- Have a UK bank account
- Earn a minimum of 3x the cost of the property you want to rent
- Agree to be a guarantor and have a reference check
- Sign a Deed of Guarantee
