Experienced residential and private rented sector lawyers

Our in-depth knowledge spans the affordable housing, multi-family, student, open market, private rented and build-to-rent sectors. We advise clients ranging from local, national and global developers, housebuilders and consortia to lenders, institutional investors, private equity, pension funds and U.S. state and federal tax credit syndicators.

Our deep resources and extensive local experience make us perfectly placed to help you. We work seamlessly with colleagues in our construction, environmental, planning and infrastructure consenting, finance and tax teams to provide support and advice through all the different stages of a transaction.

The private rented sector (PRS) now has a unique opportunity to deliver a significant proportion of global housing needs. The residential property market has come a long way from the traditional buy-to-sell or “cottage industry” PRS model. Institutions now view the sector as an asset class and have billions of dollars to invest. Existing US and European models are being looked at more closely to introduce scale, better management and more consistency to the sector.

Our PRS lawyers are responding to these market changes. We have brought together a team from our development, construction, environmental, planning and infrastructure consenting, finance and tax teams to create a dedicated build-to-rent (BTR) group. The group has been molded to meet the specific requirements of PRS deals.
