UKAA News Buzz 18/05/2021 – Join us at the Love to Rent Week

May 18th 2021

YOUR BTR NEWS BUZZ

Welcome to UKAA NewsBuzz sponsored by Love To Rent.

Love to Rent is a new online portal where you can search for rental properties and access a hub of information all about build to rent. To raise awareness of the build to rent sector, the UK’s first Love to Rent Week will launch (24-28 May) to help customers discover the benefits of renting a home in a purpose-built development.

We realise that many potential customers do not yet know the benefits of this type of renting, so during Love to Rent Week we want to make some noise and really show what sets it apart.

We would love to hear from any UKAA members who would like to learn more about Love To Rent and get involved in the week, as together we can make the most impact. Visit the dedicated Love to Rent Week website for case studies, videos and much more, and check out #LoveToRentWeek across social media for all the latest updates.

Regards,
The Love To Rent Team
