Sigma Launches New Build to Rent Brand

Sigma Capital, which was one of the first investors to become active in the Build to Rent sector in the UK, has announced that it is launching a new brand called Simple Life.

The flourishing Build to Rent sector is looking to make prospective renters ‘brand-loyal’, so names and reputations are looking set to be increasingly important for everyone involved.

Sigma issued a statement confirming that the goal of Simple Life is to bring more than 10,000 new rental properties, made of up of two, three, and four-bedroom flats and houses, to areas of North London, the North West, the Midlands, and Yorkshire.

These new rental properties will be constructed exclusively for Sigma by Countryside and Keepmoat, leading housebuilding partners. All lettings will be managed by SDL Bigwood.

The Sigma statement confirmed that Simple Life was created to make it easier for tenants to have a better rental experience and enjoy both the flexibility and freedom that renting offers.


Specialists in Construction Insurance

Last December, Sigma completed the first phase of Simple Life-branded homes on the site of a former school at Halewood. Two more developments are presently in the construction process in Oldham and Rochdale.

UK Government schemes such as Build to Rent, which has now been superseded by the Home Building Fund, have been launched to help get more new homes built in the UK by private companies. Large builders, small developers, community builders, custom builders, and regeneration firms can all apply for funds to help finance new buildings, including Buy to Rent properties.
