Rentplus is delighted to learn that it has won the National Housing Award in the Most Innovative Home Ownership Solution category.
Chief Executive, Steve Collins said: “Rentplus believes that whatever your background or postcode, you should have an opportunity to buy a place to call your own.
”We help those wishing to own a home but unable to raise the large deposits lenders require to do just that.
“Our families move in to a Rentplus home with no deposit. They pay an affordable rent and have five to 20 years to save to purchase the house they live in.
“And when they’re ready to buy, Rentplus gifts 10 per cent of the market value towards their deposit.
“The largest percentage of Rentplus families and applicants come from the public sector – our nurses, teachers, armed forces, paramedics. Not the high earners but they equally deserve the chance to own their own home.
“No-one else is offering this to families in this country – and Rentplus is doing this at no public expense.
“We have £2bn to invest today in social housing and we’d like to see every local authority and housing association in the country join us to offer people that chance to rent, save and then own their home.
“Thank you to the National Housing Awards for this award. The team at Rentplus really appreciates it.”
