More Than Just a Place To Live

Let’s be honest, housing in this country is in a mess. Buying is expensive and difficult, and private renting leaves you in the hands of some fairly unscrupulous landlords. And there is just not enough social housing to go around.

But there is another way…

Renting from a co-operative means you get security with a long term tenancy and you get to have a real say in how it is run. As an added bonus our rents are much cheaper. This is because we don’t employ¬†staff so our overheads are low.

Not For Profit Housing

At Sensible Housing Co-operative the money we make from rents goes back into maintaining our properties. But, unlike ownership, if a large repair needs doing you don’t need to worry about the cost.

We don’t subscribe to the view that your options are renting or home ownership. Joining our housing co-operative makes you a joint owner without having to be tied to a long term mortgage and all the other liabilities that come with it. But you DO have a genuine say in how your housing is managed.

We also don’t subscribe to the view that because we provide low cost housing that members have to accept a low cost service.¬† We are a not for profit housing co-operative. We re-invest rents directly into our homes when and where that investment is needed. Therefore our properties are refurbished and maintained to a very high standard and we have a quick response time for all repairs.
