At Housing 21 we grow our portfolio in two ways; through new developments and acquisitions.
We are a specialist provider of housing with care or support for older people of modest means; we don’t do anything else which is why we are experts in what we do. It is our commitment to ensure older people live in quality and affordable homes and our business plan is centred upon achieving this.
But for some organisations trying to manage older people’s housing alongside general needs housing, this can prove difficult as the two business streams have very different requirements. Through our approach to acquisitions, we provide housing associations with a solution ensuring older people receive the safe, quality and affordable homes they deserve.
By purchasing Retirement Living and Extra Care schemes from other housing associations, we can provide residents with an expert service, enabling housing associations to concentrate on their main business stream. We do this in partnership with everyone affected, ensuring residents are supported, consulted and involved at every step of the journey so they are reassured they are transferring to a reputable and trusted landlord.
The same approach is taken with employees. We know it’s not just residents who make up a scheme – employees do too. So as part of the acquisition process, we engage and work with them so they are proud to join the Housing 21 team.
We have an ambitious target of purchasing 400 units every year and invest in our acquired properties to ensure they are maintained to a safe, secure and quality standard. It is this approach that has helped us acquire schemes from eight major housing associations in recent years.
We are always keen to discuss opportunities for acquisitions, so to find out more, contact our Acquisitions Team.
