The Build-to-Rent sector still remains a largely misunderstood part of the housing industry with the view that it is a luxury product only accessible to a privileged few. However, our report clearly demonstrates that this is not the case. The sector is able to meet the needs of Londoners at whatever stage in life they are at from singles and sharers to couples and families.

Build-to-Rent developments are not just a quick fix – they are a viable long-term solution for many, and the sector has an important role to play in helping to alleviate London’s housing crisis.
