BTR has grown exponentially over the past decade, to a point where just short of 80,000 homes have been delivered; with a further c 50,000 homes under construction and c 115,000 in planning. Investment in 2022 was in excess of £6bn.

All this said, the sector is facing challenges. The increased cost of debt, the movement of investment yields, and construction cost inflation, have all impacted the viability of developments. In parallel, the headlines around rental inflation, primarily driven by an under supply of homes, and the impacts on families, (particularly those struggling on low income) are understandably influencing political thinking, and future housing policy.

So how do we find the right balance? In the face of market challenges, we are organising, a half-day ‘Interim BTR Forum’ to take place in early May, focused on ‘rented homes’: to discuss where BTR fits into the housing mix; what it broadly delivers to both renters and the wider community; exploring its affordability and benefits. We will be addressing housing policy and the ‘balance’ between the importance of protecting the needs and security of renters, against the need to ensure that BTR remains attractive to investors.

In a mix of keynotes, presentations, case studies and panel sessions; bringing together leaders from both BTR and the Public Housing sectors, we will explore how the interests of both parties can be aligned to deliver ‘more’ and ‘better’ rented homes.

This will be an authoritative conference aimed at individuals who are actively involved in the BTR Sector and Housing in general, from the private and public sectors.

[A draft programme will be posted shortly]
