Help to Buy has put homes further out of reach for many - HTTP://www.propertyweek.com/resi/help-to-buy-has-put-homes-further-out-of-reach-for-many/5090940.article Help to Buy has inflated prices, failed to deliver new homes where they are most needed and could push buyers into negative equity if the housing market slumps. These are the findings of a six-month study into the scheme by Stockdale Securities analyst and Property Week columnist Alastair Stewart. Stewart’s analysis, which comes hot on the heels of Property Week’s revelation that the government is reviewing the policy and has appointed the London School of Economics to conduct an evaluation, suggests the scheme provides few of the intended benefits and has put housing even further out of the reach of many. Stewart adds that the Help to Buy scheme, which offers a government loan for 20% of the price of a new-build home (40% in London), has fuelled the sharp growth in housebuilders’ share prices in recent years. They have become increasingly dependent on the scheme, he notes, citing the fact that more than 50% of sales at Persimmon, the UK’s largest housebuilder, are via the scheme, and that the figure is above 40% at Galliford Try, Redrow and Taylor Wimpey. “Any early curtailment of Help to Buy, amid a radically different housing agenda by this government, could hit leading housebuilders,” he warns. This was underlined by the slump in housebuilder share prices on news of the review a fortnight ago. Although the government sought to assuage concerns by denying it would end the scheme early, Stewart has his doubts about the future of the policy...

Liberum backs Galliford Try’s growth plans - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-galliford-try-reckitt-benckiser-and-talktalk/a1034981#i=2 Housebuilder Galliford Try (GFRD) could soon be seeing a host of changes, as its new management team looks set to implement a growth plan that could add 60% to profits before tax by 2021. Liberum analyst Charlie Campbell initiated coverage of the stock with a ‘buy’ rating and £14.60 target price. The shares jumped 4.5% to £13.27 on the news. He said the plans were credible as ‘the new management team has a good track record and pedigree.’ He added that while the group did have some debt, it was ‘unconcerning’ given the level of interest cover. Campbell said the shares had overreacted to bad news across the construction sector, making the valuation compelling for those looking to buy.

Pentland Estate Management (owned by Linden Homes, a subsidiary of Galliford Try) has been sold to rival firm FirstPort... Leicester property management firm sold to rival - HTTP://www.thebusinessdesk.com/eastmidlands/news/2004467-leicester-property-management-firm-sold-rival Leicester-based property management company Pentland Estate Management has been sold to rival firm FirstPort.

As our service and reputation improves, our retention rate strengthens and is currently standing at 97% and despite a stagnant housing market and uncertain economic and political environment, we are seeing record growth as more clients appoint us. “So it is exciting times and as part of our growth strategy, we are delighted to be bringing Pentland into the mix and welcoming their 12,000 customers to our business. Our mission is to make life easier for our customers: providing a local, trusted and responsive service for residents that delivers not just bricks and mortar – but a place they love to call home. We are looking forward to ensuring both colleagues and customers are able to enjoy the benefits that working for a company with our scale and scope can bring and ensuring we provide the best possible property management service to even more people across the country” Tom Nicholson, divisional chairman at Linden Homes, added: “Linden Homes and Pentland Estate Management have always been committed to delivering a level of service to our customers that we can be proud of. We were determined to ensure that any acquiring party would share these core values. We are therefore delighted that Pentland Estate Management has been acquired by FirstPort and their commitment to continue to provide excellent service to our customers.”

Interesting, given post 3905 above, that there is no commentary on the cladding front. Despite all the necessary approvals having been achieved, putting flammable panels on the outside of buildings is not going to help a company's reputation. Otherwise, GFRD looks rather cheap based on this update. All IMHO. No position here currently.

The contractors are each in line to build up to 500 homes a year for the next five years across the south of England. The contract forms part of Aster’s wider plans to invest £1.5bn in new homes between now and 2024, including a planned 1,100 properties during 2017/18. Aster assistant development director Tony Clifford said: “We are increasing the number of homes we build every year and our footprint continues to expand across the south of England.

HTTP://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/thousands-could-evacuated-more-homes-10672063 ...People living in the two-year-old Rivers Apartments in Tottenham, North London, have been told by Newlon Housing Trust that their building is wrapped in the same lethal material as Grenfell. In emails seen by the Daily Mirror, Newlon told residents that builder Galliford Try had revealed it used a flammable brand of panel, rather than the fire resistant kind. Newlon’s Housing Services director Bill Henderson apparently told one resident: “This should not have been used in a building like Rivers.” The trust told residents it is “very likely, almost certain” the panels will be replaced... ...A Galliford Try spokesman said last night: “At completion, Rivers Apartments received all the appropriate statutory approvals required under the contract including building regulations and building warranty. “The build includes a range of fire prevention measures including sprinklers in all flats, smoke ventilator shafts, fire lobbies, a fire-fighting lift and secured exit routes. “We are working closely with Newlon Housing Trust to review the technical aspects of the cladding used on the scheme while keeping the trust and its residents fully informed.”...
