Refurbishing homes for shared ownership
When a home becomes empty, we undertake an assessment to understand the work that is needed to bring it up to regulatory standards to ensure our customers have safe, comfortable homes that are built to last.
As our housing stock gets older, there are occasions where we must make difficult choices. For example, where a property requires significant investment to meet the new building safety and environmental legislation then it is unlikely this cost will be recovered by rental income alone. In situations like this, we have decided to refurbish the property and sell it as a shared ownership home, rather than via auction on the open market. This keeps it as an affordable housing option and one that we can share with existing customers and local residents. It also ensures the property remains within our portfolio and isn’t sold to a private landlord, investor, or developer.
