Corporate PRS and build to rent

Our service is tailored to your individual requirements to ensure a seamless and integrated solution for all your property needs.

For over 20 years, we have been proactively managing corporate portfolios of all types and sizes across the UK. Often in conjunction with our Estate, Leasehold and Block Management services, our PRS team offer a single point of contact with UK wide distribution, ensuring you have a constant, insightful and proactive service, whatever your needs.

National Portfolio Management

Our Corporate PRS & Build to Rent team is able to efficiently manage your entire property portfolio, no matter how wide it is spread across the country. Whether you own residential properties in London and Manchester or Leeds and Newcastle, our experienced and knowledgeable team is ideally equipped to take full control and to ensure you achieve your key results.

We provide you with a dedicated experienced Portfolio Manager that offers assistance, expertise and advice in relation to all matters that may arise with your tenanted properties.

Countrywide is a nationwide organisation with ample resources in all areas, so you can put your trust in us to deliver the results you expect. No matter how large or complicated your portfolio may be, we will manage it effectively and efficiently.

Our dedicated technical and compliance team keep us up to date with all the latest legislation within the industry, so you can be sure your portfolio is always operating in accordance with every rule and regulation.

If we do not already operate a Countrywide branch in the location of each of your properties, we will work with local agents to ensure they are marketed to a high standard. This allows you to deal directly with us, rather than having to split your time between various agents.

Our own qualified Portfolio Managers will also be on hand to take control of every step of your lettings journey, from processing applications and vetting prospective tenants to drawing up tenancy agreements, completing property management responsibilities and dealing with relevant financial affairs.

Your Portfolio Manager can oversee all refurbishments and any maintenance work that is required on your properties, as well as provide independent advice that helps you to achieve a higher return on your investment.

We have an extensive database of trustworthy contractors across the country, so whatever location your properties are found in, we will have experts close at hand. We also have an in-house debt recovery department that works with your interests in mind at all times.

A central point of contact can prove to be a significant advantage when managing properties that are scattered across the country, especially when it comes with the expertise of a large, experienced and dedicated team.

Build to Rent

Build to Rent isn’t new to us - we have been working with clients since 2010, when this sector of the residential market was in its infancy. Having helped acquire, strategize, launch and stabilise some of the largest schemes in the UK, we are uniquely placed to help advice clients through this journey.
