Our story

We're the experienced
built-to-rent developer

Placefirst is a build-to-rent developer and regeneration specialist, with a growing portfolio of over 1500 homes throughout the UK.

Established in 2010, we have a proven track record of delivering high quality, professionally managed homes for rent. We manage thriving neighbourhoods across multiple regions; a mix of new build and innovative refurbishment, single-family rental homes and apartments for the modern renter.

Our approach

We design with happy
homes in mind

We design for our residents, and learn from each of our neighbourhoods. Our homes are specifically built for rent to a high quality to give you peace of mind.

We also design, let and manage our homes ourselves. The fact that we do it all, from start to finish, gives our customers the best experience and ensures our neighbourhoods are stress-free, safe and enjoyable to live in.

Home is where the happy is
