BPF Build to Rent Pledge

Leading members of the build to rent sector have signed our pledge to offer customers three year tenancies in any of their new build to rent developments.

Signed by 20 of the sector's most active investors and developers, the pledge states:

"One of the benefits of the UK’s new build to rent sector is its ability to offer longer tenancies to its customers. We, the undersigned, therefore pledge to offer our customers the option of a three-year tenancy in any of our new build-to-rent buildings. Our customers will not be under any compulsion to take up this three-year tenancy option, and can still opt for shorter terms. To further assist customers with their budgeting, we pledge to review rents no more frequently than once a year or at the end of the initial term, and to set out clearly at the start of the tenancy the basis on which rents will be reviewed. Such tenancies will allow the tenant to break, after a short period of notice."
