In­vest­ment urged in build-to-let

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

RE­SEARCH from BNP Paribas Real Es­tate has high­lighted the po­ten­tial for pri­vate in­sti­tu­tional in­vest­ment into the pri­vate rented sec­tor.

The prop­erty ad­viser said that calls for leg­is­la­tion to en­cour­age in­vest­ment into the build-to­let sec­tor can be heard loud and clear across the in­dus­try from landown­ers, in­vestors and de­vel­op­ers.

Alex Wil­lis, in BNP Paribas Real Es­tate’s Sh­effield de­vel­op­ment and res­i­den­tial con­sult­ing team says: “By leg­is­lat­ing the sec­tor and al­low­ing large-scale in­vestors in the form of REITs or other in­vest­ment fund mod­els to en­ter the mar­ket there is the op­por­tu­nity to change this and pro­vide a long term rent­ing so­lu­tion for oc­cu­pants.”
