Property sector can build UK out of Covid crisis

According to a recent survey, post-Brexit Britain is considered a prime real estate proposition by investors, developers and asset managers from across Europe, China and the US, with the UK ranked highest for future residential property investment.

As such, it is clear that current activity in the Scottish Build To Rent sector is likely to continue to feature prominently as we build ourselves out of the Covid-19 crisis that continues to dominate life.
