We have been a leading provider of quality accommodation for over 15 years. We manage a property portfolio worth over £600m on behalf of more than 200 investors, have contracts with 60+ UK councils, and currently house close to 10,000 tenants.
We work with private individuals and corporate entities who want secure investments delivering a guaranteed return and positive impact on society. Each investment is matched to the appropriate scheme and our dedicated team oversees all ongoing management and maintenance; this is a genuinely stress-free addition to your portfolio.
We aim to give you the most efficient and seamless experience possible: from sourcing the property, to handling all aspects of negotiation and overseeing the purchase to completion. This includes a thorough feasibility study and property report to ensure you are making a solid investment.
Our professional and dedicated team works full-time on the design, remodelling and construction of each property, to convert it into an HMO. Every room is equipped with ensuite facilities, as well as new fixtures and fittings, furniture, wiring, plumbing, appliances and internet throughout the property.
We work directly with local authorities, charities and housing associations, and take responsibility for the entire lettings process. The lease agreement is directly between you and us; once the HMO conversion is complete the rental income starts, and is guaranteed for the term of the lease - whether the property is occupied or not.
SERVICE & MAINTENANCE
We work full time to service and maintain each property to a high standard. Our experienced field team is available 24/7 to maintain and service the properties, including regular cleaning services, weekly visits from a Housing Officer, and support services for tenants with specialised needs such as young adults and mother and baby.
The housing crisis is getting worse. There are currently around 160,000 households experiencing homelessness in England; this is forecast to continue growing – and almost double – over the next 25 years.
More and more accommodation is being deemed unsuitable for housing the homeless and vulnerable, and there is an absence of targeted and effective measures to address this critical issue. Alongside this scarcity of affordable housing, we are seeing a constant increase in rough sleeping and a dramatic rise in unsuitable temporary accommodation.
The most vulnerable members of our society need help. We offer them a lifeline by providing safe, secure housing: a first step to getting back on their feet.
