At face value the partnership between the UK’s second biggest privately owned construction company and one of the most respected international property consultants is an obvious one, especially with surplus public sector land to be released for housing and a government looking to fuel the building of new homes via its localism agenda. The construction business constructs and the property advisor advises. The Wilmott Dixon/Savills partnership has developed a business model for the creation, delivery and long-term ownership of private rented housing; in particular targeting the ‘in-betweeners’ - those skilled people between 25 and 35, excluded from home ownership by an unforgiving mortgage market and ineligible for social housing. Philip Callan, director of consultancy at Savills, said, “Although owner-occupation remains an aspiration for the majority, financial and practical considerations are increasingly delaying home ownership. This is creating a growing demand for, and shortfall of, good quality, well-managed private rented accommodation.” “Our private rented model is designed to provide a new housing option - new purpose built rented housing with the certainty of availability and high quality customer centred management. Our robust business model will offer investors a long-term index-linked income stream, and private and public sector landowners the opportunity to unlock significant value from under-utilised land assets.” Both Willmott Dixon and Savills will hold an interest in the partnerships with Savills sourcing the funding and managing the interests of the other equity stakeholders.
