The UK Social Housing market offers the Private Landlord
an excellent investment opportunity!
The sector provides decent and affordable homes for tenants who either choose, or are dependant on state provided or subsidised housing.
Key players in the sector are the Local Authorities who shoulder the responsibility for providing homes, working in partnership with Housing Associations and other Registered Social Landlords.
Private Landlords or Investors are also very important. We work in support of both Local Authorities and Housing Associations by leasing property to them. We also let homes directly to tenants in receipt of Housing Benefits.
This website has been specifically developed to provide access to information, courses and other facilities to help both existing and new investors to build successful businesses around a Social Housing strategy.
The opportunity for the property investor is huge:-
- £16.6 billion was budgeted to pay Housing Benefits in 2009/10 (Guide to Housing Benefit Book 2009-10);
- 1.8m families are currently on Local Authority waiting lists seeking permanent housing (Shelter report, December, 2009);
- Socio-economic and political factors all point to a growing need for more Social Housing;
- There is growing recognition of the vital role played by the Private Rented Sector in helping Local Authorities to meet the housing shortage (Rugg’s Review).
In order to exploit the opportunity in an admittedly controversial and bureaucratic environment, investors must equip themselves with the right knowledge and understanding to succeed. We aim to help you succeed!
