The author comments on whether build-to-rent developments in Great Britain should form their own use class to distinguish the sector from the owner-occupied market. Topics covered include the debate on the use class being a distraction to the biggest challenge for the sector, which is showing why long-term investment in purpose-built homes to rent is important in tackling the wider housing crisis, and the ignorance of politicians in distinguishing build to rent from buy to let.
