Supply and affordability issues in the UK housing market are well known and have put upward pressure on house prices. This in turn affects affordability levels, and driving demand in the rental sector.
The UK rental sector is fragmented and predominantly privately managed, with the standard of home and the level of landlord care varying considerably. As a result of changes in taxation and costs of entry, in recent years many small private landlords have chosen to exit the market, further reducing supply and increasing demand.
Sigma has created a new rental brand, ‘Simple Life’. It aims to set a new, gold standard in the private rental market, and typically all our homes are let and managed through this brand.
