ARE SOCIAL HOUSING INVESTMENTS RIGHT FOR YOU?

Here at The Property Sourcing Company, transparency is our top priority. In all honesty, Social Housing Opportunities are not for everyone, so you will need to make sure they align with your individual goals and needs.

Supported Housing Opportunities offer long-term stability, reliable returns and have a positive social impact. Which is why, social housing investments are perfect for investors who are:

  • Socially conscious: Investors seeking to contribute to the solution for housing vulnerable individuals, while generating a financial return. 
  • Hands-off: Investors who desire a passive investment with minimal property sourcing and management responsibilities. 
  • Seeking stable returns: The enhanced LHA rental payments, guaranteed by a FTSE 250 company and backed by the Government, offers a reliable income stream with minimal risks of void. 
  • Long-term: With our long lease terms, SHO’s are ideal for those seeking long-term investments and stable returns over an extended period. 

However, if you are seeking short-term returns, or prefer a more hands-on approach to property management, social housing investments may not be for you. We would however still recommend that you consider our STO (Source To Order) premium package, as these could be flipped to generate faster returns.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF OUR SOCIAL HOUSING OPPORTUNITIES?

We are currently working with numerous providers covering the majority of England and Wales who offer a range of long lease terms. The leases will vary between provider but some of the benefits include:

Benefit from LHA rental payment rates of up to 30% above standard rates.

Enjoy the security of rent payments backed by a FTSE 250 company and the government.

Eliminate the risk of vacancy periods and lost income.

Rest assured that the property meets Gas Cert, EPC, EICR and Fire Regulation compliance.

Choose from lease terms ranging from 5 to 10 years.

Although we do all the legwork for you, you solely hold the title deeds, meaning the property is yours.

(If applicable)

Avoid middle management, registration or set up fees. There are also no council tax or utility bills to pay.

Transfer responsibility for property maintenance to the Home Office.

Experience hassle-free property ownership with no tenant or neighbour contact.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF INVESTING IN SOCIAL HOUSING?

Investing in social housing presents a unique set of pros and cons, making it an attractive option for some investors, and less so for others.

Despite some considerations, the benefits often outweigh the drawbacks, offering a compelling case for this investment avenue.

Pros of investing in social housingCons of investing in social housing
✓ Hassle-free management✘ Location limitations
✓ Reliable returns✘ Rental restrictions
✓ Positive social impact✘ Legal and tax costs
✓ Diversification & stability
✓ FRI Leases
✓ Long-term growth potential
✓ Sustainability focus

The advantages of investing in government backed social housing

Investing in government backed social housing means that you will experience hassle-free property management, and a passive income stream. Housing associations or councils manage tenant issues, maintenance and rent collection, allowing you to enjoy a truly passive income. 

With high demand government support, social housing also offers stability and attractive yields, ensuring your investment is backed by essential needs. 

By investing in social housing, you help address the housing crisis and provide more affordable homes, making a real difference in people’s lives and fostering stronger communities. 

Social housing adds a unique asset class to your portfolio that is less volatile than stocks and bonds, with long-term leases offering predictable income over time. FRI leases shift maintenance and repair responsibilities to the Home Office, and provide a more predictable income stream and protect you from unexpected expenses. 

Social housing can also offer both steady income and potential capital appreciation, especially in high-demand areas. 

The disadvantages of investing in social housing property investments

Investing in social housing, while beneficial, does come with certain disadvantages. The availability of social housing properties can be highly location-specific for one, often requiring careful evaluation for long-term success.

However, as the UK’s leading investment sourcer, The Property Sourcing Company is dedicated to finding properties that meet your specific requirements. We will source properties in appropriate areas and ensure they align with your investment goals.

We always allow you to approve or reject property suggestions. If a property we find doesn’t match your criteria, we will continue searching until we find one that fits your needs perfectly. Your satisfaction and investment success are our priorities. 

Tenants in social housing are typically chosen by housing associations or councils. While this can limit your control over tenant selection, it ensures consistent occupancy and rent payments. But, since you won’t be actively involved in property management, the type of tenant may not significantly impact you. 

As with any property investment, legal fees and taxes are inevitable. Our team is on standby to assist you with finding a solicitor, exploring financing options and navigating any other challenges you may face. We are here to support you every step of the way to make the process as smooth as possible.

SHOULD YOU INVEST IN SOCIAL HOUSING?

Investing in social housing allows investors to experience a balanced blend of financial returns and social responsibility. The social housing sector plays a vital role in providing affordable housing to vulnerable individuals and families, addressing a pressing need within the country. 

One of the primary advantages of investing in social housing is the stable income it generates. Long-term leases with government-backed housing associations or local councils ensures a consistent rental income for investors. 

Additionally, the UK government offers various incentives to encourage investment in this sector, including grants (Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, Home Building Fund), loans (Affordable Homes Guarantee Scheme, Housing Infrastructure Fund) and tax breaks (Social Investment Tax Relief, VAT Exemption), further enhancing the attractiveness of this investment. 

However, it’s important to consider that rental yields in social housing might be lower than those in the private rental sector due to the affordable rent levels. Additionally, investors have limited control over tenant selection and property management, as these aspects are typically handled by the housing association or local council. 

Despite these considerations, the demand for social housing continues to grow due to the ongoing housing crisis in the UK. This growing demand potentially leads to capital appreciation of the investment over time. Furthermore, the government’s commitment to addressing the housing shortage suggests continued support for social housing initiatives.

What is the social housing investment return?

By investing in UK social housing, you are entering a profitable path with a positive social impact. As the demand for affordable housing continues to rise, this sector has become increasingly attractive to investors seeking both profit and positive social impact.

Social housing investments offer consistent rental incomes, with long-term leases from government agencies or housing associations ensuring regular rent payments, often with annual increases tied to inflation.

High occupancy rates and continuous demand minimises the risk of empty properties, ensuring a steady income stream. Social housing investments typically yield over 8.5%, depending on the location, property type and lease terms. Refurbishment projects can potentially yield even higher returns. 

As the demand for affordable housing continues to outpace supply, the value of social housing properties may appreciate over time, offering substantial capital growth.

SOCIAL HOUSING INVESTMENT FAQS

Have you got a question about investing  in social housing that we’ve not yet answered?

Not to worry, we’ve pulled together some of the questions we regularly get asked and answered them for you below:

Social housing is a vital part of the UK’s housing system, designed to provide affordable and secure accommodation for individuals and families who cannot afford market-rate housing. It serves as a safety net, offering a more accessible alternative to the private rental sector.

Traditionally, social housing has been provided by local councils and housing associations, but the landscape has evolved to include registered charities and social care providers. These organisations act as landlords, offering lower rental prices, typically set based on average local incomes, and longer-term tenancies for greater stability. 

The fundamental purpose of social housing is not profit generation, but rather to address critical social needs. It aims to reduce homelessness, support vulnerable individuals, and mitigate the ongoing housing crisis. 

By offering affordable housing options, social housing plays a key role in fostering inclusive communities and ensuring everyone has a place to call home. 

Over time, the definition of social housing has broadened to encompass various types of affordable housing, including shared ownership and intermediate rent schemes. However, at its core, social housing remains a critical lifeline for those struggling to find suitable and affordable accommodation in the private market. 

The UK government recognises the importance of social housing and actively supports its development through various incentives and funding programs. This commitment reflects a broader understanding that a secure and affordable house is not only a basic human right but also a cornerstone of a healthy and equitable society.

Social and supported housing investments present a compelling opportunity for investors seeking reliable income generation with minimal hassle. From the moment you invest, these properties begin generating income, offering attractive yields that often surpass traditional residential investments.

With returns reaching 8.5% or higher, social housing can provide a consistent and dependable income stream. This is due to the long-term leases with government-backed housing associations or local councils, ensuring stable rental payments for extended periods.

Social housing investment is a unique strategy in the investment community that involves acquiring properties specifically for the purpose of leasing them to government-backed housing providers. 

These properties are then utilised to provide affordable and secure housing for vulnerable individuals and families who face challenges accessing traditional market-rate accommodation. 

This investment model creates a win-win scenario. On one hand, it addresses a critical social need by ensuring that safe and suitable housing is available for those who need it most.

On the other hand, it offers investors a reliable and consistent income stream, thanks to the long-term lease agreements with reputable housing providers and the support of government initiatives.

Social and private housing investments both offer potential benefits, but social housing stands out as a compelling option for investors prioritising stability, passive income and social impact. 

Its government-backed, long-term leases guarantee consistent rental income, frequently exceeding 8.5%, while the hands-off approach eliminates the burdens of property management. This unique combination allows investors to generate reliable passive income while actively contributing to a vital social need, making it an attractive option for those seeking both financial and ethical returns. 

In contrast, private rental properties, while offering the potential for higher yields ranging from 5% to 8%, often require a more active management approach. 

Landlords are usually responsible for finding tenants, handling maintenance issues, and managing tenant relations, unless they opt for the added expense of a letting management company. This increased involvement demands more time and effort, potentially outweighing the allure of potentially higher yields for some investors.

We source 5 to 10 year leases for our investors. Our core focus is providing our investors with the most secure, hassle free and beneficial leases available.

If you are unsure if our Supported Housing Opportunities are the right investment for you, get in touch with us and we can discuss what other options are available and help you make an informed decision that is right for you.

Our social housing investments offer a complete hands-off approach, no contact with tenants, and no contact with neighbours. The service provider handles all aspects of tenant management. 

Your investment is completely hands-off allowing you to enjoy the benefits of passive income without the hassle of property management.

Investing in social housing offers a distinct advantage in terms of tenant security and rental income predictability. Unlike private rentals, where tenancy agreements can be relatively short-term and subject to frequent turnover, social housing tenants often benefit from secure, long-term leases.

These leases provide stability for both tenants and investors. Tenants gain the reassurance of a stable home, reducing the stress and uncertainty associated with frequent moves. For investors, this translates to a more reliable income stream. The reduced risk of vacancy and tenant turnover ensures a steady flow of rental payments, making it easier to forecast and manage cash flow.
