Sectors Demystified: Build to Rent


Real Estate Balance held another in the ‘Sectors Demystified' series on the subject of build to rent on Wednesday 27th February 2019.

The roundtable lunch event, held at the offices of Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, proved very popular with Real Estate Balance members keen to find out more about this hot topic.

Alex Notay, Lesley Roberts and Andrew Yates, well known practitioners at the forefront of the growing build to rent sector, discussed the way that the market has developed, what “build to rent” (as against “PRS”) really means and the issues that they are seeing around the development and management of successful build to rent schemes. 

As economic issues and Brexit uncertainty have created difficulties for retail and other commercial property sectors, the interest in build to rent is going from strength to strength. Alex, Lesley and Andrew discussed what investors are looking for and some topical issues to think about for those involved in this market.

A light lunch was enjoyed during the talk followed by Q&A and networking.
