*** Press Release *** Touchstone partners with the UKAA


Touchstone, the specialist property management firm, has become a Premium Supporter of the UKAA. Dave Butler, CEO, UKAA, said:

“We are very pleased to welcome Touchstone on board as our first Premium Supporter. We look forward to working closely with them to take the Build To Rent sector forward by developing and sharing best practice amongst our members to deliver a better renting experience for our customers.”


With 30 years of experience, Touchstone operate across the Build to Rent (BTR) and Private Rented Sector (PRS), working with some of the UK’s biggest landlords. The firm has recently expanded its BTR consultancy, with current projects in England, Scotland and in the Republic of Ireland.


With 20,000 units under management, Touchstone’s experience covers both apartments and houses. The firm is now working to expand the ethos of BTR into other purpose-built rental portfolios for long term hold, providing services that have not traditionally been offered to the sector.


Helen Kings, Managing Director, Touchstone, said:


“We’re a business that believes passionately in improving customers’ experience of renting, and we chose to partner with the UKAA because their vision aligns with ours. We are all helping to shape the future of renting, to make it better every day.


“As experts in the sector, we are keen to share our experience and best practice with other UKAA members, while also gaining valuable insight from others working in BTR.”

The UK Apartment Association (UKAA) is the organisation for everyone involved in the UK Build To Rent sector.

Our vision is to make Build To Rent a lifestyle of choice for our customers by:

  • Spreading the message about the benefits of Build To Rent;
  • Communicating how Build To Rent can help address the UK’s housing crisis;
  • Developing best practice amongst our members, raising standards and focussing on our customers;
  • Enabling our members to learn from each other and from 40 years of experience from the USA;
  • Creating the authoritative source for information on Build To Rent in the UK.


Our members are creating the rental communities of today and tomorrow – together we are shaping the future of Build To Rent.
