Build to Rent and the Private Rented Sector
The UK’s private rented sector (PRS) has more than doubled in size in recent years and it is set to keep expanding.
‘Build to Rent’ is becoming increasingly the way forward with institutional investors taking their lead from our European and US counterparts. There are now more than 10 million people living in privately rented accommodation accounting for over four million households - 19-20% of the total number of households in the UK. With the scope for institutional investment increasing within the sector, supported by the government, these  gures look set to continue to rise with projections indicating growth to around 25% in the next few years with London reaching 50% by 2020. A recent Investment Survey of large-scale investors in the PRS indicated that activity is poised to step up signi cantly in the years to come with investment more than trebling by 2020. This translates into total sector investment of £50 billion by then, up from £15 billion today.
SLC recognises the very speci c challenges presented by the PRS and, as the sector grows and becomes more mature, our tailored PRS legal service supports clients in all aspects of their letting and management operations including recovery of rent arrears and extended ‘trace and collect’ service.
