*based on all completed units being occupied/income producing

Construction activity continued to progress well, with 55 new homes added to the portfolio since 30 June 2022, the end of the last financial year. This has taken the total portfolio to 4,841 completed homes with an estimated rental value ("ERV") per annum of GBP49.1m as at 31 August 2022. A further 669 homes were contracted at that point and are at varying stages of the construction process.

Of the 4,841 completed homes, 4,745 (98%) were occupied as at 31 August 2022, with a further 40 homes reserved for qualified applicants with rental deposits paid. Rental demand remains high, supported by a strong rental market and the attraction of the PRS REIT's high-quality, well located and managed homes. Rent collection was 99% in the two-month period. (This is rent collected as a percentage of rent invoiced in the period). Total arrears remain very low, at GBP0.6m on 31 August 2022.

Rental growth

The previously reported 5.1% like-for-like average rental growth over the year on stabilised sites reflected blended growth rates across both existing tenant renewals and re-lets to new tenants. Rental growth on lettings to new tenants at c.10% has been significantly higher than the average rental growth of 5.1% across the portfolio of stabilised assets. This has contributed to an increased ERV across the entire portfolio, with overall ERV in excess of aggregate current anticipated rent, and also accounts for the significant majority of the valuation uplift over the period. A smaller but additional portion of valuation uplift is attributable to the continued tightening of net yield from 4.2% at 31 December 2021 (30 June 2021: 4.25%) to 4.125% at 30 June 2022; a result of the reversionary nature of the rents and strong demand for PRS assets in the market.

Energy performance

All the Company's homes are built to be energy efficient, and approximately 86% of homes in the portfolio are rated 'A' or 'B' in terms of energy performance certification, with the remainder rated 'C'. As well as being environmentally desirable, this puts all homes in compliance with proposed new regulation requiring all rental homes to possess an energy performance certificate ("EPC") of 'C' or above from 2025.

Dividend

The Company declared dividends totalling 4.0 pence per share for the year ended 30 June 2022, and the annual dividend is now almost fully covered by earnings on an annualised run rate basis, with coverage continuing to grow during the financial year ending 30 June 2023 as construction, completions and lettings advance.

Audited full year results

The Company expects to publish its audited full year results on 11 October 2022.
