HCA calls for pension fund investment in private renting



The Homes and Communities Agency has released plans to encourage private investors, including pension funds, to invest in private rented housing. Around eight organisations thought to include two housing associations and a couple of pension funds have been in talks with the HCA about building new properties, although the British Property Federation has warned the initiative may not be enough without changes to stamp duty charges for large scale investors.
