Dandara Living are developers and operators of apartment buildings designed specifically for the rental market. The company was established in 2016 with a vision to create great places for people to live at a price most of us can afford.

Build to Rent

Renting a home is becoming increasingly appealing to a range of people at different stages in life, from young people moving away from home for the first time through to older people wanting to downsize. As demand for rental is increasing and people are asking more from their homes, so too is the level of professionalism and quality of the offer.

Our developments

Our offer has been born from a combination of factors led by what customers want - both from their homes, and their relationships with landlords and neighbours. We recognise that life in a build to rent development is about much more than the apartment you live in, and so when considering the design of our buildings, we prioritise what matters most to people.

Shared spaces

Each of our developments has a range of different areas where people can work, including lounge and kitchen areas, as well as private rooms available to book for parties. Many of our developments also have well-equipped gym and studios on site.

Typically, each of apartment will have its own private balcony or terrace. All of the kitchens will be fitted out with integrated appliances and the bedrooms all have built in wardrobes. The two bed apartments have equal sized ensuite bedrooms, making them perfect for sharers.

Landlord and tenant relationships

At the centre of our relationship with our customers is the tenancy agreement. Ours has been developed to provide maximum security of tenure for the people who live in our buildings together with an ability to put down roots, and make the home their own by decorating or moving in their pet with them.

Social activities

Our on-site teams organise social events throughout the year as well as facilitating the various interest-led clubs such as cycle groups, gardening clubs, book clubs, that are created according to the interests of the residents at that development.
