After 90 years of decline caused by economic and social factors, the deregulation and fiscal changes in 1988 brought about a structural change in the private rented sector. The emergence of a true open market, altered investment criteria and demographic and lifestyle changes have led to the creation of a multi‐billion pound investment market. Investors, managers and valuers have had to develop new skills and attitudes to adapt to these changed circumstances.
