Owen McLaughlin Managing Director of Countrywide Land and New Homes commented,
“I’m incredibly proud of our market leading offering for shared ownership services. Shared ownership is a great vehicle for people to join the housing ladder and its growing in popularity.
We have been working with shared ownership as part of our New Homes services, but with the expertise we hold through our Affordable Homes Director, Roy Hind, and his team, we increasingly found the demand for a specialist service was snowballing.
As part of the Connells Group, we support our clients from inception and land buying right through to handing over the keys to buyers on move in day.
The phenomenal breadth of the Connells Group proposition includes almost everything a HA could need, both in respect to new build and existing stock.
This is a massively exciting launch for us, we have already worked with many well-respected partners and industry giants and are stepping into to 2024 poised to expand.”
