What is Build-to-Rent?

As one of the main perks of renting at Forbes Place, find out what Build-to-Rent developments are and what it could mean for you.

In a nutshell, Built-to-Rent property is designed and built specifically for renting. In recent years, it has become increasingly popular in the UK, with cities like London and Manchester leading the way with this new type of accommodation.

One of Scotland’s first build to rent developments

In Scotland, Forbes Place is one of the country’s first ever Build-to-Rent developments and the very first in Aberdeen. The whole development is owned by major institutional investor (in this case LaSalle Investment Management), rather than a large group of individual landlords, which has major benefits for you as a renter:

  • Security of tenure – Stay as long as you like

    You don’t have to worry about individual landlords taking the property back – either so they can sell it, or move in themselves. Forbes Place is owned by a single landlord (LaSalle) and every property within the development is for rent, so you can keep renting with us for as long as you like.

  • On-site management – not in for that delivery, no problem

    As we’re based on-site Monday to Saturday, there’s someone to sign for your parcels or online groceries, which we’ll store securely for you until you collect them. It also means you can report any maintenance issues or speak to us directly if you have a problem at any time during your tenancy.

  • Rapid response – We’re on hand to solve any problems quickly

    Should anything ever go wrong, repairs or maintenance will be undertaken quickly and efficiently because we’re based on-site.

  • Community – You’ll get to know us

    Our ethos is to treat everyone as an individual and a valued customer – so you’ll soon be on first name terms with our team.
