Brooke House, Mount Ephraim Road

Build to rent is gaining popularity in the UK, but only now is Tunbridge Wells experiencing the phenomenon of homes being purpose built for rent, not sale. Or more accurately, developed to rent.

Brooke House, known to many in the town as the previous HQ of Cripps solicitors, before their move to Mount Ephraim, is being redeveloped to provide a range of one, two and three bedroom apartments, available to rent in early spring.

HVH Properties, a well-established landlord with a growing portfolio, is developing the site to a high specification of design features. Centrally located on Mount Ephraim Road, the development is set to draw a lot of attention from local workers, not least because the apartments will come with the luxury of a parking space and even on site electrical charge points. With an understanding of what modern renters need, HVH have also included lift access, cycle storage plus Virgin and broadband connections.

HVA have appointed local independent agents Alexandre Boyes, to both let and manage the complex. You can find more information about Brooke House and how to register your interest by visiting the website below:

"Demand from tenants continues to grow, indicating that renting is now more of a lifestyle choice. Large deposits are required to purchase a home and applicants need to meet strict lending criteria, meaning that many people find renting a better option. We continually work and advise landlords how best to present their properties to attract the best possible tenants."
