John Lewis is to become a major landlord, aiming to build rental homes at 20 of its sites around the UK as part of a strategy to rebuild profits to £400m within five years.

The retailer, which also owns Waitrose, said the new homes could be built above or beside stores or on other land it owns, and would be furnished with products from John Lewis department stores. Residents would also be able to order food deliveries from Waitrosesupermarkets. It is aiming to make planning applications for two sites in Greater London in the new year.

Cool, should be the cheapest like for like monthly rent in those areas based on square footage prices, becasue John Lewis are "Never Knowingly Undersold". so if after you move in, another landlord will rent you a similar property in that area cheaper, JL will refund the difference, monthly.

Why is it disgusting, is it a good thing for rental housing to be more professionalised? I would rather rent a flat from John Lewis than from Accidental Landlord My BTL Portfolio Is My Pension.

A benefit also available to 100% of the rest of the population. 

Maybe the rental contracts will forbid deliveries from the plebs supermarkets. The benefit is knowing you are only living next door to other waitrose customers. 🤣
