Oct 30, 2018 | News

The latest property phenomenon – build-to-rent (BTR) properties for Generation Rent – will be on the agenda at Insider’s upcoming North West Residential Property Breakfast.
Outside London, the region has the highest volume of BTR homes completed, under construction or in planning. The so-called Generation Rent is fast-becoming one solution to the UK’s housing crisis, with tenures that offer more security, stability and predictability to renters.

According to data from the British Property Federation, there were up to 30,000 BTR homes under development across the North West at the end of the first quarter of 2018. For the region’s property sector, it is therefore an attractive proposition, sought-after by investors with appetites for long-term rental incomes.

Given this rapid rise in the number of BTR housing, now is the perfect time to examine what is behind thishow the sector is reacting and what is in the pipeline.

One of Insider’s most popular annual events in the region, the North West Residential Property Breakfast, which is taking place on 31 October and is coming to Liverpool for the first time, being held at Princes Dock.
