Build to Rent: guidance and allocations

The Build to Rent fund is a fully recoverable investment where the government shares risk or bridges finance to help schemes to build, managed and let.

The investment could be used to cover costs such as land, construction or management costs. Once the scheme is fully let the developer will sell on their interest or re-finance and repay the investment.
