Build-to-Rent / Private Rented Sector

The residential development sector is part of Walker Morris’ DNA and has been for the last 30 years. We have extensive experience advising across all areas of the sector and have provided clients with support at all stages including:

  • preparation and strategy,
  • acquisition
  • financing
  • planning
  • site development and construction
  • ongoing management
  • site disposal.

We appreciate opportunities in the PRS market can convert quickly into a yield performing asset and the key lies in ensuring that there is a fast turnaround from the planning stage to subsequent development and completion. We understand it is therefore critical that a client be provided with expert advice, expeditiously delivered on a cost effective basis. We have a track record of delivering this for our clients and are primarily able to do so given that we have a deep knowledge and understanding of the housing industry, plus a level of practical expertise across the various relevant legal disciplines within the PRS sector.

Whether you’re expanding your business, building new partnerships, establishing operations in new markets or making operational changes, we can provide you with expert support.

Having our expertise on board early in your business planning will provide you with the advice you need from the outset, helping to ensure future success. When new challenges arise, we can advise on best practice to enhance and protect your business.

We draw upon our sector experience in advising a broad spectrum of clients from private and public sector landlords with national and international portfolios, to national operators, managing agents and asset managers.

We are currently the only firm in the region to be awarded top tier rankings for housing work in both Legal 500 & Chambers.
