  • Very informative, interesting and food for thought. 
  • 10 out of 10!
  • Interesting points made: leasehold is clearly a problem compared to elsewhere.


In this webinar kindly supported by Winckworth Sherwood (opens new window), we explore various tenure options, from shared equity products such as older person’s shared ownership and discounted market sales to private rental and try before you buy. Our expert panel shares how developers, housing operators and investors can open up a new market for much needed age-friendly accommodation for a ‘rightsizer’ market.
