Outline: Following the launch event for the IPF’s briefing paper, ‘Mind the viability gap: Achieving more large-scale build-to-rent housing’ in January, the IPF Residential Special Interest Group has been considering other hurdles to the development of a large-scale PRS market in the UK. This seminar will look at three such hurdles:
• Different valuation methodologies co-existing within PRS
• Requirement for a widely-adopted Index
• Requirement for professional management capabilities
The speaker and panellists outlined what is currently being done to address these and discussed what more needs to be done.
