With our headquarters in Kent and a nationwide reach, we offer comprehensive services in facilities & estates management, health & safety, sales & lettings, and of course, maintenance & construction.

What is Build to Rent?

Build to Rent refers to properties that are specifically designed and constructed for rental purposes rather than for sale. This model is increasingly popular in urban areas where rental demand is high, providing a stable income stream for investors and high-quality living spaces for tenants.

Key Features of Build to Rent

Purpose-Built Developments: BtR properties are tailored to meet the needs of renters, often featuring amenities like gyms, communal spaces, and on-site management offices.

Professional Management: Unlike traditional buy-to-let properties, BtR developments are typically managed by professional companies, ensuring a high standard of service and maintenance.

Long-Term Tenancies: BtR offers longer lease options, providing stability for tenants and reducing turnover for investors.

Community Focus: Many BtR schemes are designed to foster a sense of community among residents, with shared spaces and events encouraging interaction and engagement.

The Benefits of Build to Rent

For Investors:

Steady Revenue Stream: With high demand for quality rental housing, BtR developments often achieve higher occupancy rates and more consistent rental income.

Lower Void Periods: Professional management and desirable amenities attract and retain tenants, reducing the time properties remain vacant.

Enhanced Property Value: Well-maintained properties with premium features can command higher rental prices and appreciate in value over time.

For Tenants:

Quality Living Spaces: BtR properties are designed with renters in mind, offering modern, well-maintained flats with attractive communal areas.

Reliable Management: Professional on-site management ensures prompt maintenance and a high standard of living.

Flexibility and Stability: Longer lease options provide tenants with the flexibility they need along with the stability of a long-term home.
