Delivery Progress

During the fourth quarter of the financial year, 170 new rental homes were added to the Company's portfolio, taking the total number of homes added during the financial year to 802. T his has raised the number of completed homes in the portfolio to 4,786 as at 30 June, an increase of 20% year-on-year.

The estimated rental value ("ERV") of the 4,786 completed homes at 30 June 2022 was GBP47.8m per annum, a 27% increase on the same point last year (30 June 2021: 3,984 homes with an ERV of GBP37.5m per annum). A further 693 homes, with an ERV of GBP4.4m per annum, were contracted at 30 June 2022, and are at varying stages of the construction process.

As planned, during the period, the Company completed the acquisition of a contracted site and acquired an additional development site, utilising debt funding. The contracted site is located at Baberton Grange, Nuneaton, and comprises 50 newly-completed and let homes, with an ERV of GBP0.5m per annum. It was bought from Sigma Capital Group Limited after an independent valuation. The new development site is at Drakelow Park, Burton-Upon-Trent, and will deliver 41 homes when fully completed, with an ERV of GBP0.4m, at a gross development cost of GBP7.3m. The Company plans to acquire a further three sites in the first half of the new financial year.

Asset Performance

Asset performance during the quarter was very strong. Rent collection* for the period was 100% and total occupancy at the end of the quarter was at 98%, with 4,674 of the 4,786 completed homes occupied. A further 53 homes were reserved at the quarter end for applicants who had passed referencing and paid rental deposits. Total arrears at 30 June 2022 were low at GBP0.6m (30 June 2021: GBP0.4m) . Like-for-like rental growth over the year has been strong at 5.1% on stabilised sites.

These very encouraging performance figures demonstrate the continuing strong market demand for rental homes and the attraction of our high-quality homes, which are well-located, and supported by very high customer service.

*Rent collection is defined as rent invoiced in the period against rent collected in the same period.
