Why you should
1. Deal Origination
We negotiate our leases directly, and develop our own properties, rather than acquire existing or ready-made investment portfolios which are often bought at a premium.
The margin that’s usually paid to middlemen is instead used to improve the design, specification and quality of our homes to offer competitive and sustainable rents to our customers.
This approach also enables our investors to benefit from the value created along with the long-term, government funded, inflation linked secure income.
Our partners and customers include local authorities, housing associations and charities. Their tenants are often individuals with learning & physical disabilities, autism, dementia, mental health and life changing injuries.
Working directly with our partners and customers gives us a clear insight of the market, and a better understanding of their needs. This empowers us with the ability to deliver desirable, quality homes that meet long-term housing needs.
We never carry out speculative investment. Long-term leases are agreed and signed by our customers prior to acquisition and development, meaning any financial risk is mitigated.
2. Real Estate Development
Our aim is to set the industry benchmark for Specialist Social Housing provision.
We’re making this a reality by developing our own real estate assets. This approach gives us control over the design, specification, and quality of the homes we deliver.
Our homes adaptable by design, enabling support for a wide range of specialist care needs.
3. Value Growth
The whole is always greater than the sum of its parts – and this is no exception.
By seeking out our own investment opportunities and developing our own real estate assets, we create value that is retained in the company.
This makes a positive contribution towards our Net Asset Value, rather than paying third parties unnecessarily.
4. Long term secure income
In most cases, our customers require long term leases as the individuals they support require a home for life.
Leases are typically 20-25 years in length, Full Repairing and Insuring (FRI) and indexed with inflation.
The rents are funded by central government and paid by the local authority through housing benefit.
Local authority commissioners continue to support Specialist Supported Housing because it not only improves the lives of residents, but also saves the government money.
According to Mencap, Specialist Supported Housing saves almost £10,000 per annum when compared to residential care and £100,000 per annum when compared to inpatient care.
