Co-housing

We enjoy being involved with the formation of Co-housing developments, a great new way of promoting the neighbourly behaviour of communities that’s synonymous with days gone by.

We are excited to be involved in this relatively new area within the UK housing market; the formation of communities that are created and run by residents. Their purpose is to combat the loneliness and isolation many people experience today and to recreate neighbourly support through the provision of communal areas and shared responsibilities.

Whether co-housing groups are looking to start a new community using empty homes or building from new, we are able to utilise our development experience and our appraisal techniques to advise them on the negotiation of terms when acquiring sites for development purposes, as well as the negotiation of options and conditional contracts. We work closely with a specialist legal firm, Wrigleys Solicitors helping clients to work together to achieve a better quality of life.
