We’ve agreed a deal with fellow housing association Orbit to move 48 homes in Hammersmith and Fulham and 11 in Barnet to our portfolio.
Over recent weeks, our team have been engaging with new residents in the two locations, ensuring they know about the work we do and what we stand for. The team has also held events so customers can meet their local officers – their main point of contact for all queries and concerns.
The transfer makes sense for both organisations and their customers. For us at Notting Hill Genesis, our greater local presence in the two areas should provide long-term benefits for residents and a positive impact for the local community. It also reiterates our commitment to providing social and affordable housing all across London following our purchase of 50 affordable homes in Islington last year.
For Orbit, the transfer creates operational economies of scale by allowing them to make the most of their property portfolio, which in turn will enable them to improve services for customers and further their work to ensure long-term, sustainable economic growth.
We are extremely proud to have acquired social and affordable housing in these high-demand areas and look forward to providing high-quality services to those living there. We hope our new residents will be very happy as Notting Hill Genesis tenants and leaseholders.
