British Property Federation ‘Build to rent’ MPs survey

Survey of 150 MPs on behalf of the BPF on their attitudes towards ‘Build to rent’ and housing supply

A new BPF poll of MPs conducted by ComRes highlights the support for ‘Build to rent’ and its wider contribution to the UK’s housing supply.

The survey found that:

  • There is support in the House for the ‘Build to rent’ sector and its contribution to housing supply. A majority of MPs (81%) voice their support, while only one in seven (14%) say they oppose.
  • Around three in five MPs (62%) say they expect ‘Build to rent’ to make a higher contribution to housing supply over the next five years than it does so currently.
