In response to the MHCLG Affordable Housing supply figures 2019-2020 released today, Steve Collins, Chief Executive of Rentplus, an affordable rent-to-buy housing provider, said:

Dec 3, 2020

“These statistics show that the affordable housing crisis is getting worse rather than better, with a 15% fall in affordable home ownership completions for schemes other than shared ownership, nowhere near enough to satisfy demand.”

“It is those such as key workers, many of whom are on low incomes, who suffer the consequences of this undersupply, particularly given that shared ownership schemes are not suitable for everyone. It is vital that the government recognises the need for privately funded providers of affordable homes, such as Rentplus, which can deliver new homes without the need for any public loan or grant and play a key role in getting aspirant home owners on the housing ladder .”
