The UKAA (UK Apartment Association) has appointed David Reid to Chair its committee for the SFH Build to Rent sector. David is seen as a leading figure in the rapidly growing suburban Build to Rent market.

Currently Managing Director of Legal & General’s Suburban Build to Rent business, David is committed to supporting the SFH sector to deliver high-quality new houses that meet the needs of institutional investors and operators, whilst also providing secure, professionally managed housing for families.

The committee also aims to drive engagement with policymakers and local authorities – to improve understanding of the quality and value of suburban Build to Rent delivery in providing high quality rental homes that meet local market needs.

UKAA’s work brings together SFH investors and operators with the housebuilders who deliver them, to create mutual understanding and collaboration that can establish long-term partnerships for the delivery of new homes

“We are delighted to welcome David Reid as Chair of the UKAA’s new SFH committee. As the membership association for the institutionally backed UK Build to Rent sector, we recognise and fully embrace the importance of single-family rental and look forward to working with David and the committee to represent the interests of those investing in, developing and operating purpose-built, single-family rental homes.”
