Leaf Living is launching its newest family homes for rent at The Paddocks on the outskirts of picturesque Tye Green village, near Braintree and at Fontwell Meadows, located in West Sussex, just west of Arundel. The traditionally designed homes, specifically built for families seeking a home to rent, offer state-of-the-art automation technology in superb locations and within thriving communities.

The new properties present a range of benefits, including flexibility and security options not usually provided by traditional rental homes. Residents can choose the length of their tenancy (12, 24, or 36 months), all with the option to extend agreements. Alongside impressive specifications and stylish designs, Leaf Living has partnered with SmartRent, the industry leader in smart home technology, to install solutions in all properties to empower families to control their home from their phones. With the ability to lock and unlock the front door, issue one-time access codes to visitors, set and control the heating as well as the installed Ring camera doorbell and security alarm, SmartRent and Leaf Living to provide residents with homes designed for the 21st century.

Experiencing the new properties is easier for prospective tenants too, as Leaf Living now accommodates SmartRent’s Self-Guided Tours. These private tours mean visitors feel more comfortable taking their time with their viewing, leading to more conversions from viewing to tenancy. In addition, Leaf’s property managers can remotely monitor utilities systems serving the homes and can promptly engage their maintenance teams, often before the resident notices.

The combination of SmartRent’s latest smart home automation technology and Leaf Living’s commitment to provide the highest level of property management ensures immediate operational efficiencies, as well as a top-end living experience.

Leaf Living offers a new way to rent a home. Our secure tenancy options and deposit-free schemes give our residents certainty and control, while the option to decorate and bring your pets with you truly make a Leaf Living house a home. Partnering with SmartRent is our latest initiative to meet the needs of our busy residents, especially during a time when energy costs are a concern; this technology makes day-to-day living more convenient and could mean potential cost savings too, with residents able to control their heating from their phone, away from the home. The technology also ensures that we are in the best possible position to maintain our properties efficiently and effectively."

- Tiffany Harrison, Head of Lettings

We’re pleased to work with Leaf Living to bring solutions to their properties that make life easier for all users."
