BNP Paribas share their Build to Rent report for Q3 2020, which provides key insights including market overviews, activity and outlook.

“The Build to Rent sector has thrived during these challenging and unprecedented market conditions. In Q3 we have seen investment activity in the sector picking up momentum, with a number of large forward-funding deals recorded.

“The UK residential investment market continues to attract interest from both domestic and overseas investors who recognise the strength and long-term prospects for this sector.

“Another trend that has continued to grow stronger in 2020 is renters desire to have high-quality and well-managed homes.

“All sectors have been impacted in one way or another but Build to Rent operators have navigated through the crisis well so far. Operators of schemes continued to report robust rent collection, at over 90% for the quarter; notably higher than the levels reported for other property sectors.”
