Urban Village Group is offering a rent-free period to doctors, nurses and other emergency service workers.

According to the group, the offering is “a thank you for their efforts in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic”.

The rent-free period will last two months at apartments across the country, added the group.

In Sutton, Coldfield, more than 12 apartments are available at Knight’s House, a new development of luxury apartments, which is a short walk from Good Hope Hospital.

Meanwhile in Leicester, homes are available at the Equinox building at Burleys Way, near the city centre.

Furthermore, properties in the company’s national portfolio are included in the offer where there is availability.

Nick Sellman, chief executive of Urban Village Group, said: “We’ve all been so impressed with the care, commitment, and bravery shown by everyone involved with the NHS, from nurses and doctors and all the way through to cleaners and administration staff.

“Without their fantastic efforts this terrible disease would be claiming even more lives than it already is. As a nation, we need to do all we can to support the people putting their own lives on the line to save others.

“As a business, we felt we needed to show our appreciation which is why we’re offering NHS staff and other emergency workers a two month rent-free period, which we hope will give them a boost at a time when they need all the support we can give them.”
