Private Rented Sector

The Private Rented Sector is growing rapidly, and is now a recognised asset class in the UK.  This rapid expansion is happening in established urban hubs as well as more suburban areas, but demand still outstrips supply. This is driving housebuilders and developers to continue to obtain consents and deliver innovative products – all while meeting ambitious planning targets for the delivery of affordable housing.

As well as the more traditional forward fund delivery model, we’re also starting to see an increase in the trading of stabilised assets and a number of investment funds are diversifying their current property portfolios into the build to rent sector – tempted by the long term and often secure nature of the sector’s income returns.

What we do

The residential development sector has long been a part of our DNA here at Walker Morris and we have a great deal of experience advising clients across all areas of the sector. Our work includes:

We know our clients want to quickly convert opportunities in the market into a yield performing asset, so a fast turnaround is important. Our strong track record of delivering this is reassuring for our clients, and our 30 years of experience in the housing sector means that we can confidently handle any twists and turns that come our way.

Whether you’re expanding your business, building new partnerships, establishing operations in new markets or making operational changes, we can help. Our clients often come to us early in their business planning, and this makes sense – if new challenges arise we can guide you with the whole picture in mind.
