Inspired by the recognisable pointed homes that once were the habitat for Native American tribes, Quintain have launched Tipi, their private rented sector business.
Tipi, will act as a managing agent offering ‘Hotel inspired services’, where tenants are offered furnished or unfurnished 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments for a minimum of 6 months. This service will be available in the two blocks, ‘Montana’ & ‘Dakota’, which are named after territories known historically to have Native American tribal roots. These blocks are a part of the wider Emerald Gardens scheme which will open at Wembley Park later this year.
This new development will join Quintain’s existing apartments; the popular Forum House and Quadrant Court, though bills there have been a pain point for residents. Neither the freeholders nor managing agent are regulated at these apartments, so it often feels like you’re dealing with cowboy’s in the wild, wild west. This has resulted in leaseholders complaining about the managing agents and freeholders, trying it on and ripping-off residents with sky-high bills.
Quintain have learned from this and are now promoting the hashtag ’#NoBills’ for their new Tipi scheme. This may sound misleading, yes of course tenants wont live in Montana or Dakota for free but instead will be charged an inclusive rent that contains utility bills.
The new PRS business tweeted, “When we promise that ‘All utility bills are included in your rent’ we really do mean it. No #heatingbills no #electricitybills no #waterbill”
If you’re an existing resident at Wembley Park who has experienced ongoing issues with #heatingbills, #electricitybills, #waterbill, let us know in the comments.
