Nuvu Living to introduce three-year tenancy agreements

Nuvu Living is believed to be one of Britain’s first private landlords to introduce three-year tenancies. They will be available from next week, (w/c 9 July) for customers looking to move into new PRS developments at Nuvu Birchwood and Nuvu Church Street, both in Warrington. The landlord will also offer the extended tenancies at its new developments Nuvu Amberley Drive in Wythenshawe, Manchester and Nuvu Covent Garden in Stockport.

Paul Warburton, Director of Property Operations at Nuvu Living, part of Your Housing Group, said: “Nuvu Living is proud to introduce three-year tenancies.  Our intention with this offer is to provide our customers a greater level of security and stability to allow them to plan over a longer horizon.  Three-year tenancies are a step in our aspiration to create life-long tenancies for our customers.

“We believe that renting should not be viewed as solely for those people who cannot afford to buy their own home.  Landlords have a responsibility to provide rental solutions that are a positive life style choice and a meaningful alternative to home ownership, from first home to retirement options.  As such, a landlord’s service provided to tenants should have safety, security and longevity at its core, to enable renters to make longer term decisions about their home type, location and community.

“This initial step follows active consultation with prospective customers at our Nuvu Birchwood development, where overwhelmingly customers supported the longer-term view.”

The number of people living in the private rented sector has doubled over the past decade.  A fifth of all British households – around five million people – rent their homes privately. Eighty percent – approximately four million people – are on contracts of six to twelve months – and a quarter of these renters are believed to be families with children. 

Paul added: “Offering longer tenancies enables Nuvu Living to develop a better understanding of our customers’ needs and stronger landlord-tenant relationships.  Ultimately, it means we can better support communities to thrive.  We are strongly supportive of the Government’s initiative to provide longer term tenancies and will respond to the Government’s consultation process accordingly.”

Can you channel the spirit of Stockport and name our new apartment blocks?

Can you suggest names for our four apartment blocks within our new, £9.4m Nuvu Covent Garden development in Stockport?

The winner will get to officially unveil the name plaques AND walk away with £100 of gift vouchers!

Nuvu Covent Garden will feature 74 homes, offering a mixture of one, two and three bed apartments and houses. They’ll be available to rent, buy or purchase through shared ownership.

Now we invite you to send in four original name suggestions, which all share a common theme. We want you to take inspiration from the local area and its history for example, the cultural link with painter L.S Lowry, Stockport’s musical landscape and the tradition of manufacturing in the area.

The winner, who the judging panel believe best captures the spirit of the new site, will win two gift cards worth £100 for the Light Cinema, at Redrock, in Stockport and be given the opportunity to unveil permanent plaques outside each block.

The competition will be judged by Lorraine Donnelly, Nuvu Living’s development director at Your Housing Group.

Lorraine said: “This is a great opportunity for a local resident to permanently name a stunning new development in Stockport town centre. Nuvu Covent Garden was depicted in L.S Lowry’s 1930 painting ‘A street in Stockport – Crowther Street’ and the town has a varied and interesting industrial past.


“Stockport is also a musical town, Strawberry Studios, the legendary recording studio is located here and Blossoms, who launched their second album from an ice cream van at Foodie Friday, are proud Stopfordians. It’s time to get creative and think about what names capture the heart of Stockport.”

Email your four connected names to [email protected] with ‘Covent Garden Naming Comp’ in the subject line. Or Tweet @nuvuliving using the hashtag #RenameCG

You need to act fast! The competition closing date is Wednesday 25 July 2018.
