Housing Together was established in June 2018 by a group of like-minded professionals to bring together private investors and Local Authorities to help solve the Social Housing crisis under the umbrella of the Government’s Long-Term Lease Scheme for social housing. In the past 12 months we have placed in excess of €20 million.

Our Vision…

To make private investor funds available to increase the supply of Social Housing in Ireland through the provision of high-quality houses and apartments. These properties are then leased to the Local Authority (under the Long-Term Lease Scheme) to help reduce the social housing deficit whilst also providing secure income and stable long-term returns to our investors. Our aim is to become the largest provider of Social Housing homes to Government under the Long-Term Lease Scheme.

Our Strategy…

Our emphasis is on collaboration and through partnerships with Local Authorities, Estate Agents, Private Investors, Investment Advisers, Qualifying Fund Managers & Pensioneer Trustees our team of professionals identify, finance and acquire quality residential units for lease to Local Authorities. Our panel of estate agents, solicitors, surveyors and contractors ensures a smooth and cost-effective pathway to finalising the lease agreement for our clients.
