The Top 5 Complete Landlords in the UK

Here are the Top 5 Complete Landlords in the UK, as rated by verified residents on HomeViews.

This list was featured in our Headline Summary 2019 National Build to Rent Report, which was presented at The UKAA Annual Conference by our co-founder, Hannah Marsh. To download a report please visit

The HomeViews’ mission is to provide verified and honest insights into what it is like to live in new build developments. Recently we expanded across the UK and have published thousands of reviews across 8 UK cities. Read our area guides for London to look at the highest ranked developments in your preferred locations.

The Complete Landlord category includes providers, operators or agents that are responsible for all services in a Build to Rent development.

For a landlord to be included in the list, a number of factors were considered:

  • a minimum number of verified resident reviews,
  • the overall rating,
  • number of developments,
  • number of reviews,
  • and the percentage of tenants who would recommend them to their friends or family.
