Federal Treasurer Scott Morrison announced restrictions on the purchase of residential property by managed investment trusts in September 2017. Luke McIntosh of Ernst & Young claimed at a property forum on 30 April that the restrictions make it hard to attract the foreign capital needed to get the build-to-rent sector off the ground in Australia. Build-to-rent involves the development of housing from which investors make their profit by retaining it for renters rather than selling it.
