Affordable housing services

Carter Jonas’ affordable housing valuation team specialises in the valuation of affordable housing assets. Our current team of affordable housing valuers provide advice to registered providers (housing associations) across England. 

The affordable housing sector is rapidly changing, with new entrants to the market including private equity and pension funds setting up ‘for profit’ registered provider entities. 

The sector is highly regulated and the continuous steam of new Government policies affecting the affordable housing world mean our clients need specialist, up-to-date advice. 

How can Carter Jonas help your social housing needs?

Carter Jonas advises many of the G15 group of large registered providers however we also advise smaller registered providers, community land trusts and charities.   

A growing part of our business is working with Local Authority clients, many of whom are developing affordable housing schemes of their own or in joint venture arrangements.  

We also provide affordable housing advice to private sector bodies including landowners and developers. This can be either up-front at scheme feasibility stage, as part of a planning application or later on, when seeking to dispose of the Section 106 affordable housing units to a registered provider.

Why choose Carter Jonas to value affordable housing?

Registered providers need to make sound business investment decisions based on robust valuation advice provided by valuers who truly understand the environment within which they operate.   

Similarly, affordable housing forms an important part of most new residential developments and it requires a bespoke valuation method. No longer can developers afford to take a ‘finger in the air’ approach to the value of affordable housing tenures, especially when the landscape is constantly evolving.   

With our experience of valuing affordable housing across the country we have the right level of up-to-date knowledge to advise our clients.
