Eversheds Sutherland Build to Rent Group

The opportunity to deliver a significant proportion of the UK’s housing needs via a large scale Private Rented Sector (PRS) has never been greater.

The market in residential property has come a long way from the traditional buy-to-sell or private rented sector model. The institutions have become interested in the sector again as an asset class, and concepts from the US and Europe are being looked at more closely in order to put the whole sector on a more institutionalised basis. Supply, scale, good management and yield all remain the issues that investors take into account.

The Build to Rent sector seeks to address this and in response we have brought together lawyers from our residential, development planning, tax and construction teams to create a dedicated Build to Rent group to meet the specific requirements of a PRS deal.

What sets us apart?

We have unmatched depth of experience

We were the first firm to act on a BTR transaction in 2012, saw its potential and established a dedicated PRS team. Having transacted numerous deals since then, we are years ahead of our competitors in respect of knowledge and experience in the sector.

Our clients lead the BTR market

We act for many of the leading investors, developers and funders in the market. They use us because we are best in class and have more experience than any other firm in the sector.

We know how to structure BTR

Structuring is absolutely key to any transaction, but is particularly relevant to the BTR sector. Our tax and funds lawyers are specialist in giving “cradle to grave” advice to clients (from institutions to brand new entrants) on BTR projects.

Resource is never a problem for us

With over 400 lawyers, we have the UK’s largest full service real estate practice. We can therefore handle any transaction and clients often come to us with their deals because they know we always deliver when others can’t.

Residential is part of our fabric

We have been heavily involved in the residential market for many years, advising nine of the top ten house builders on their major projects. This experience is a real benefit to our BTR clients, many who have little previous experience in investing or developing residential assets.
