A thriving city life, a stunning waterfront, and famous for being home to the legends that are The Beatles…it could only be Liverpool.

Not only is Liverpool bursting with arts and culture, it’s also been voted one of the friendliest cities to live in the UK. Let’s not forget the world-class football teams and even better nightlife.

Cost of renting in Liverpool

If you’re packing up and moving to a new city, you've got to make sure you know your budget as well as knowing where all the hot spots are.

When it comes to accommodation, BTR or ‘Build to Rent’ developments are becoming increasingly popular as they tend to offer much more bang for your buck. They’re designed specifically for renters, with on-site management and security staff, as well as amenities all included. According to HomeViews, BTR residents are among the happiest residents in the UK and consistently rated their properties, on HomeViews, higher than the average rental property.

Sitting on the Liverpool waterfront, Moda, The Lexington is a BTR neighbourhood that delivers so much more than a bed and four walls. With prices starting from £1,050 per month for a studio, residents can benefit from a fully interior-designed home, state-of-the-art amenities, curated resident events and tech that’s specifically designed to boost residents’ wellness. At Moda, The Lexington, we use energy from renewable sources such as hydro, solar, or wind.
