The Financial Benefits of leasing a Build-To-Rent apartment in Canary Wharf

At Vertus, we believe that prospective residents should be given the option to enjoy the high life in London without needing to commit to buying.

Read on to learn more about the benefits that you can enjoy whilst residing in a luxury Vertus Build-to-Rent apartment on a privately managed Estate.

The Financial Benefits of leasing a Build-To-Rent apartment in Canary Wharf


The needs of our residents always come first. This is why we always listen to what they say they want.

Access to communal spaces is one of the things that people desire the most, according to HomeViews data. You’ll find inviting open areas that are suitable for group activities, such as our expansive roof terrace at 8 Water Street, in all of our Canary Wharf residences. The terrace offers contemporary lounge seating, together with dining tables for alfresco dining or a game of table tennis in the summer. There’s also a bar for residents and visitors.

We understand the importance of community life, which is why we have made it easy for residents to get to know one another and spend quality time with their friends and families. You’ll enjoy all the benefits of Club Vertus, which means exclusive access to a range of elegant, fully-furnished spaces for socialising and working. An ever-growing, exclusive events programme takes place within the spaces of Club Vertus, which is curated by our team and residents to include Wine Wednesdays, Yoga on the Terrace and lots more. We also offer a range of additional events via the Vertus residents app which take place across the Canary Wharf estate.

If you’re looking to host a dinner party without having to deal with the cost, time and effort involved in finding the perfect table in a Central London restaurant, we have just the solution. You have the option of renting the Parlour and inviting a private chef to entertain your friends and family.

HomeViews reviews have revealed that wellbeing is also high on the priority list. Access to fitness facilities significantly improves tenants’ happiness. If you’re keen on staying fit and active without having to meet the additional cost of a gym membership, you’ll find that Vertus has everything that you need for your daily workout. Those living at Newfoundland, where prices start from £1,928 pcm, enjoy access to  exceptional fitness suites.

Residents at 10 George Street (prices from £2,015 pcm) are able to use a state-of-the-art gym studio managed by Antidote, whilst those renting at 8 Water Street (prices from £1,950 pcm) benefit from an exclusive Third Space gym membership (from £170).

When considering the cost of London flat rent prices, the value of a BTR becomes plain to see: the average rent for new tenancies in London is £1,572 pcm. In other parts of London, the costs are higher still: according to statistics from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) for October 2019 - September 2020, the average rent of a one-bedroom property in Kensington and Chelsea is £2,062 pcm.




You’ll find that flexible working hours are best experienced at Club Vertus.

Discover working from home without the additional cost of renting a studio space, and take full advantage of superfast broadband, free bean-to-cup coffee machines and a dedicated space with comfortable seating and specs of an office.

This compares favourably to the cost of most co-working spaces in London. A standard private office with WeWork, for instance, starts at £460 per month. A hot desk alone will set you back £200 per month, and a dedicated desk starts at £285 a month. If you find yourself drawn to a flexible work-life balance without the cost of a desk on top of your London apartment rent, consider Vertus and the established community that you can find within.

One of the myths that you’ll hear about living in a BTR building is that the up-front fees are even higher than traditional renting.

This is simply not the case: there are no up-front fees whatsoever. At Vertus, all that we ask is that one month’s rent is paid in advance. You also have the option of extending your tenancy at any time, at no extra cost, and with no variable terms.
