Free webinar: The unlocked future for Build to Rent operators and residents

A free webinar dedicated to the Build to Rent sector will discuss the all-important questions about the impact of lockdown, recent guidance from The Property Ombudsman, mitigating transmission risks and more.

The coronavirus pandemic has transformed the world as we know it. These profound changes will alter the way people work, live and play in the post-virus, pre-vaccine months or even years. Against a turbulent economic backdrop, the UK’s Build to Rent community marches on, with their resident-first principle and a new emphasis on transmission risk mitigation. 

Following the Government’s strategy for recovering from Covid-19, Build to Rent operators can now look ahead. In light of this, a panel of experts will take part in a virtual live debate about the unlocked future for Build to Rent operators and residents. Registration is open and free to attend. Details:
