What is Build To Rent?
What are Build To Rent properties?
Build To Rent is a new type of rental properties that is built, owned and managed by institutional landlords and property managers. This is different from traditional private letting where an individual landlord owns the property and manages it himself, or instructs an agent to manage it.
How are Build To Rent properties different from traditional private lets?
Housing quality and scale of operations are the key differences. Most Build To Rent properties were built in the last 2-4 years following strict NHBC quality standards and are regularly maintained as part of the whole development. A private-let property could be ex-council and much older with maintenance subject to landlords' budget.
When something goes wrong in a Build To Rent property, onsite management has readily available tools and resources for immediate fix. A private landlord can be slower and less responsive.
