Buy to Order for supported living providers

Helping you find the right home

Many supported living providers struggle to find the right properties for their tenants who might have specific needs. Using standard property portals like Rightmove and Zoopla can be time consuming as landlords fail to understand the requirements of supported living tenants and the different lease options.

Our Buy to Order service has been set up with this in mind. It allows you to upload the exact property you’re looking for, either by describing it or just adding a link if you’ve already seen the ideal property for sale. 

Helping you find the right home

Our property members can then access the requests and make proposals that are sent straight to you. If you see a proposal you like the look of, we take care of the paper work and make the introduction so that you can deal with the investor directly. They will pay us a fee for the introduction, but the service is completely free of charge for you. 

This creates a win-win situation: providers are able to find properties that meet their requirements, and property investors can target their next acquisition to create homes for those who need them the most. 

Ideally, you can evidence your experience in managing a supported living property previously and where needed, are working with a Registered Provider but if not, this is something we can help you with.

If you would like to know more on how to secure aa property and how best to work with property investors, you can access our Property Training for Care Providers course for more information.
