Monkey vs Owl Offers Local Accommodation For NHS Staff And Key Workers

Derby-based residential lettings company Monkey vs Owl (MOVO) is offering discounted rates on a wide range of local accommodation that has now become available during lockdown.

The company has more than 50 en-suite rooms available in multi-occupancy properties – many of which are close to the Royal Derby Hospital – which would usually be rented out to visiting and contract professionals or university students.

The company is offering them at heavily discounted rates to NHS staff who need to live closer to work for convenience and to protect their own families, those returning to the profession and other key workers.

Monkey vs Owl Director Chris Monk explained:

“We manage a large portfolio of HMO – which are houses of multiple occupancy – in and around Derby city centre.

“We have spent the last few weeks deep cleaning the rooms and doing extensive refurbishments so that they can be made available for any frontline staff who need them – particularly those who need to live close to the Royal Derby Hospital.

“They are all available on a temporary basis and include all utility bills to help keep life as simple as possible. It’s our small way of saying ‘thank you’ to those fighting on the frontline in these difficult times.”

Monkey vs Owl was set up in 2018 with a focus on taking an innovative approach to professional and student residential lettings through a high-tech web platform, taking the hassle out of renting, while creating a new way for people to discover their city.
