Hit the gym or relax on the communal roof gardens after a hard day at work
City slickers meet eclectic East Enders
Pets are part of the family
We know it’s important to have someone who’s always there to help – that’s why we have a dedicated property management team who will be with you from day one. They’ll show you the ropes and be your go-to people for anything and everything to do with your home.
Residents have access to a beautiful green space in the concrete jungle of the City via the communal roof gardens on the 10th floor, offering stunning views of London town. There’s also a 24-hour concierge service, private residents’ gym, and a secure underground car park and cycle store.
The buzz of the City and the edge of the East End are what makes Aldgate Place such a vibrant and exciting place to live. Take a stroll down Brick Lane, explore vibrant Spitalfields Market or head to a top restaurant in one of London’s city skyscrapers.
Many landlords hate the thought of their tenants having pets. Luckily, we’re a little different. Pets are great for stress relief (and cuddles), so if you live with us, you can bring your bundle of fluff with you too.
Towering over Commercial Road and Whitechapel High Street, Aldgate Place is in a prime location between the City of London and the East End. Life in the city is all about connections, and at Aldgate Place you are spoilt for choice.
If you’re a city worker, the days of being squashed on an overcrowded tube could be far behind you as you start and end your day with a relaxing stroll to and from the office. Getting around is also a doddle with Aldgate East station directly opposite the building and Aldgate station just down the road, connecting you to London’s Underground network via the Hammersmith and City, Metropolitan, District and Circle lines. There’s also Shoreditch High Street and Whitechapel overground stations a mere 10-minutes’ walk away.
For journeys to Canary Wharf or further afield, you have Tower Gateway DLR and Liverpool Street station nearby too. Plus, if you prefer to take in the sights whilst you travel, you can make use of the many bus routes that serve the area or cruise along on a Thames Clipper service from Tower Pier.
We are now open for the in person tours. Face time calls are available on request.
Reserving an apartment is easy and can be completed in just a few minutes over the phone or after you have viewed the property and decided that you want it. You can also reserve an apartment on this website - available apartments are listed under their locations pages here. There will then be a one-off holding commitment per apartment required at commitment stage and deposit payable at the time of application. This amount is refundable if you no longer wish to proceed with the application within 72 hours of making the payment. The holding commitment is also refundable if you made your decision based on a virtual viewing and you later change your mind within 24 hours following an in-person viewing.
Due to the UK Right to Rent policy, we are required to obtain and check original identification of tenant(s) that allow them to live in the UK. These documents are normally checked at the viewing stage, so please be prepared to show your identification to our team member. Documents must be obtained and checked for all tenants wishing to live in the apartment; if a tenant is not present at viewing or a virtual viewing is arranged, a copy of the document must be sent via email to the MyLo team, who is then required to see the tenant and check the document via Skype or FaceTime before agreeing a contract. Documents will need to be verified in person upon arrival for move-in.
Once you have paid your holding commitment, you are required to go though referencing checks with an independent provider which we will refer you to. These checks can be as short as 1 day if all information is provided.
The reference check process is mainly dependent on your availability and ability to complete the online application form, and on your referees’ availability. However, the process normally takes around 3-7 business days.
Written cancellations received within 24 hours from securing the apartment are accepted with a refund of your holding commitment. Any cancellations received later than 24 hours will be accepted, however without refund of the holding commitment.
We offer flexible lease terms from 6 months onwards. If after the expiration of your fixed term, you wish to continue living with us, but without locking yourself into another fixed term, we also give you the option of rolling on a month to month basis, for an additional monthly fee.
In order to rent a MyLo apartment, you will need to pass affordability checks. The joint household income must be at least 2.66 times the rent. Advance rental payments are an option if a household does not pass the affordability criteria. We do accept UK based guarantors as long as income meets x4 of annual rent criteria. Students would be required to pay upfront.
All individuals over 18 years old are welcome to apply for one of our apartments, however all students will be required to pay upfront.
Once all tenants have passed referencing checks, your first month’s rental payment is payable. If your tenancy starts before the 20th of the month, your first rental payment will cover the remainder of that month. If your tenancy starts on or after the 20th of the month, your first payment will cover the prorated (remainder) rent of that month in addition to the rent for the following month. Once verification process has been completed, a member of our team will be in contact to confirm securing the flat as well as next steps in reviewing and signing your Tenancy Agreement.
One off non refundable holding commitment of £400 that will be allocated towards your first month rent. Additional fees apply for parking, pets and other services that can be arranged at the start of your contract.
We charge 1-bedroom £2,100, 2-bedroom £2,600, and 3-bedroom and 4-bedroom £3,000 apartment deposits.
Your deposit is protected by The Deposit Scheme and refundable at the end of your tenancy. We process your deposit within 10 days after agreeing with you on charges applied to damages, if any, excluding normal wear and tear conditions.
Your holding commitment, deposit and first months’ rent can be paid via bank transfer into the account information with which we provide you at the time of application. Monthly rental payments can only be paid by Direct Debit.
Rent is due on the 1st of the month by Direct Debit.
Your rental increases are noted within your contract and this is usually only applicable for longer contracts of more than 12 months.
Once the application process is complete and reference checks passed, your new property manager will get in touch to discuss the tenancy agreement and terms you are about to enter. Once all is agreed and the agreement is signed, we will schedule a convenient time with you to meet on the day of your move-in to handover keys, settle your balance, conduct apartment inspection/inventory, complete a home induction tour, and help you settle into your new home.
We require 2 months’ written notice of your intention to vacate the property at end of your tenancy. This notice of intent can be cancelled and you can continue residing in your MyLo apartment for another fixed term by renewing or by rolling on month-to-month. However, if your apartment has been leased following receipt of your written notice of intent to vacate, we will not be able to receive cancellation. If you wish to terminate your contract early, an early termination fee will be charged equivalent to two month’s rent to exercise the termination.
At MyLo, we aim for the highest standard of services and quality of product, therefore we ask that our residents maintain their homes in good condition and leave the property in the same state and condition in which it was received in order to avoid cleaning fees at move-out. At MyLo, we offer preferential rates in cleaning services, so these will be available for your convenience.
No, it is part of our service to assist you with the inspection and the inventory of the property on the day of your move-in without any additional charge.
The difference in MyLo service comes from having a dedicated property management team, whose only goal is to deliver an exceptional customer service experience to our residents. We have a designated community manager, service team and maintenance who will look after you during your stay with us and support you throughout.
Yes, we love them! As leaseholders within the block, we have a very good professional relationship with the Block Management agent, however written permission is still required before accepting pets in the apartments. There is monthly pet rent of £75 per pet, which contributes to the additional communal cleaning and maintenance required. Unfortunately, there are some breed restrictions in place, so please contact us for full details.

While living in one of our MyLo apartments, you will benefit from the 24/7 Concierge services onsite to respond to any emergencies within the block. Your MyLo maintenance and management team is also ready to respond to any emergency such as flooding, power outages or fire. More information on what is considered an emergency can be found in your resident handbook provided on the day of move-in.
Our leasing office has gone virtual. As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has evolved, we have made changes to our business practices based on the latest public health recommendations. Our management office will remain open to serve our residents. However, we are temporarily ceasing all in-person property tours and meetings with prospective residents. Instead, we invite you to use our website to explore our community virtually. You may also call or email our leasing office to set up a virtual viewing with one of our leasing professionals.
