NEW: home ownership board »

Did you know that we have a thriving home ownership and leasehold discussion group based in the south east? 

Membership is made up of representatives from local authorities and housing associations located in the south east of England. The group provides a forum for housing professionals to exchange views and opinions and to share best practice. Meetings are held on a quarterly basis with a flexible agenda, for which recent topics have included:

  • changes to right to buy
  • implications in practice arising from changes in the law
  • service charge accounts
  • auditing changes
  • ‘share to buy’

The group also operates an email network for members to engage with each other for feedback on policies, procedures and ideas for service improvement. In addition, the group holds an annual conference, focusing on a wide range of home ownership and leasehold topics. If you'd like to join in the discussion group, please contact Kelly Seenundun
