BEST MEDIUM DEVELOPMENT

Sponsored by Direction Law

Direction Law is one of the most established and largest specialist affordable housing solicitors in the country, operating nationwide from offices in London, the South East, South West and the Midlands. We work with well-over 100 housing associations and specialist agents across the country and completed almost 4,800 new build purchases between April 2021 and March 2022.

We are a friendly, professional firm and we pride ourselves on communicating with our clients clearly and concisely. While other firms may have conveyancers, who deal with a variety of affordable housing cases, we have taken it one stage further and have individual dedicated teams specialising in either new build shared ownership, resale sales and purchases, or new build/Help to Buy respectively – thus ensuring greater expertise.

Our goal is to progress cases to exchange and completion as swiftly as possible, resulting in satisfied clients who have achieved their dream of homeownership with the minimum of fuss.

BEST NEW DEVELOPMENT IN THE SOUTH

BEST NEW DEVELOPMENT IN THE NORTH

Sponsored by Metro Finance

Metro Finance – we just love shared ownership! Every month around 2,500 potential buyers contact us, and our goal is to help – help establish what’s affordable for the buyer, then help them achieve the right mortgage; at the same time as helping to ensure regulatory requirements are met for our partner housing associations, nearly 100 from across the UK. 

In support of the sector, we developed shared ownership affordability chatbots, staircasing chatbots and a series of portals for buyers and HAs, all aimed at tracking and streamlining the shared ownership journey. Not content with current speeds, we introduced facial recognition ID checks and Open Banking software to our portals, focused on making it easier for buyers and HAs. Can we do more? Always… working with lenders, regulators and stakeholders to give shared ownership the positioning it deserves
