In 2018, Madison Brook Homes (MBH) was created to directly address the
shortage of decent homes in the UK’s social and affordable housing sectors.
With over 1.4M
households on waiting lists for social housing, and annual house-building
delivery failing to match population growth, the UK’s housing problem is
structural - and it is worsening.
In London alone over 52,000
households are currently housed in Temporary Accommodation (TA). This includes over
120,000 children (up from 87,000 in 2014).
This is housing arranged by Local Authorities (or London Boroughs) to
house some of the UK’s most disadvantaged young families, until permanent
solutions can be arranged. Alarmingly, over
74% of families housed this way have been in TA for over a year, and cases of families
in TA for over 5 years are commonplace; often outside of their original (home)
borough and away from their families and friends.
To help address this problem, MBH is now partnered with a number of
London Boroughs and Local Authorities to supply well-located, decent quality residential
properties – in scale.
Specifically, in West London, MBH is partnered with Lampton 360 to acquire, refurbish, let and manage homes on behalf
of the London Borough of Hounslow. In East London, MBH is sourcing properties
for Local Space on behalf of the
London Borough of Newham. In total we have sourced over 400 properties in the
last 12 months.
Our aim is to provide well-located properties that are refurbished to a
very high standard and well managed to ensure standards remain high. We believe that tenants in social and
affordable housing deserve the same treatment and standards as their private
To supplement our sourcing of existing residential
properties, we are also launching Madison Brook Modular – to deliver quick,
comfortable and highly flexible homes for Councils most in need of turnkey
housing solutions. More on this in due course.
