New Area Director to widen Rentplus’s North East offer

Feb 3, 2022

Lisa Hogarth has joined Rentplus taking up the role of Area Director in the North East of the country.

Newcastle-based Lisa will lead on developing Rentplus across the region, ensuring that local people on low/middle incomes can access affordable rent to buy homes.

She joins the business from Riverside Housing Association in a pivotal year which will see the award winning rent to buy business expand and grow, and celebrate its second year cohort of tenants transitioning from being renters into homeowners.

Steve Collins, Rentplus CEO welcomed Lisa to the business.  ““With approaching 25,000 homes in our pipeline across the South of England and Midlands, Rentplus is now making great inroads into the North. We have tenants moving into brand new homes with no deposit on a site in Kirbymoorside – our first in Yorkshire – and some will buy their home in 2027, using our 10% gifted sum to add to their savings.

“Lisa’s experience across the housing and development sector in the North East will help us to quickly establish ourselves deeper into the North East. giving local people across the North East of England the chance to own their own home.

“I am delighted to welcome her to Rentplus.”

Lisa will work closely with John Walton, Regional Director for the East of England to bring new schemes to fruition, enabling more of our key workers and other lower and middle income families into homeownership.

She said: “We know there is a demand for working people to own their own home, but the ability to raise deposits prohibits many of the people we want to encourage to live here – our key and essential workers who are priced out of living near their work.

There is much talk about “levelling up” and giving people the chance to own their own home defines what that means for me.

“Rentplus delivers a real opportunity for them to get on the housing ladder.

“Rentplus has an ambitious growth strategy for the region and I am looking forward to delivering this. I will be contacting councils, developers and housing associations over the weeks ahead to deliver homeownership for those who aspire to own their own home but who cannot save the large sums needed.”
