LendInvest is now a member of the Home Builders Federation!

To support and enhance our efforts to champion the small scale property developer, we have joined the Home Builders Federation.

The HBF is the representative body of the private sector home building industry in England and Wales and its members are responsible for 80% of housing output each year. They work with Government officials to ensure housing policies are introduced that facilitate housing supply, in a way that is workable for the industry whilst representing it’s members in discussions with key decision makers in government and during formal consultation processes, both nationally and regionally.

Ian Thomas, Chief Investment Officer at LendInvest, said: “The Home Builders Federation is recognised as the voice of the home building industry and becoming a member will help us to support the growth of SME builders in every region of the UK. There’s no silver bullet to solve the housing crisis, but by forging links of this kind we hope to drive momentum behind industry initiatives to increase sector skills, enhance the voice of the property sector and ultimately put more homes on British streets.”

The organisation currently supports the LendInvest Property Development Academy, maintaining a presence at our South East courses. 

Through our membership of the HBF we aim to ensure that the government’s housing policy addresses challenges for SMEs in access to land, finance and skills.

John Slaughter, Director of External Affairs at the Home Builders Federation, said: “With an undersupply of homes in the UK, it will take partnership between of all parts of the home building industry to deliver the homes the country needs. For this reason, we are delighted to welcome LendInvest as an associate member of the Home Building Federation and look forward to their continued contribution in supporting small house builders to scale.”
