Delivering working families’ dream of home ownership through rent to buy

Rentplus is the leading provider of affordable rent to buy housing. In September 2019, Rentplus won the National Housing Award for the Most Innovative Home Ownership Solution. They give lower and middle income aspirant home owners, with limited access to social housing, a real opportunity to get on the housing ladder, and come off councils’ waiting lists. Residents move in to a brand new home without needing a penny’s deposit.  

Rentplus buys the s106 element on new housing developments. They work closely with housing association partners, to whom they lease the properties, to give aspirant home owners on 5 to 20 year leases. The model helps those who have debt or financial issues: it allows them to pay affordable rent, and gives them space and time to clear debt and save.  

Places for People is a leading UK affordable homes-led placemaker.

The Group’s placemaking, property investment, development and management companies are active throughout the UK and collectively have the capability and expertise to create and manage entire places, considering all the things a place needs to become a sustainable community.
