Build to Rent

De-risking from the start with long-term asset protection

Your expert partner for extensive asset protection

By their nature, Build to Rent construction projects can involve a significant level of risk, with potentially major consequences for developers, investors and tenants. Financial, environmental and reputational factors all come into play – highlighting the need for a partner who understands how to effectively mitigate risk and support the decision-making processes. At NHBC, we have more than 80 years experience doing exactly that, empowering the industry to build better homes and maximise the long-term value of your assets. 

Our partnership ethos focuses on working with you from the earliest opportunity to help you deliver homes of the highest quality and value. From day one, our advice and support aims to mitigate specific, tangible risks to your projects, whilst maximising the quality of construction and safeguarding your investors’ long-term assets.

Early engagement and technical risk management

Our teams are on hand to provide technical expertise and guidance from day one. We engage early in the process to help de-risk your project.
