RHP acquires 196 properties in Kingston and Surbiton
This week RHP completed a successful stock transfer of 196 homes based in Kingston and Surbiton from the previous owners, Moat Homes.
The southwest London-based housing provider acquired the properties with help from a record breaking bond secured in 2015.
New customers will benefit from RHP’s new all-digital service, RHPi, the first online only housing service in the UK. Customers will be able to manage their homes at their fingertips with quick and easy to use e-services including an online repairs booking system.
RHP’s Head of Development, Robin Oliver, says of the transfer
“We’re delighted to welcome our new customers to RHP and are looking forward to providing them with our sector leading customer service. The acquisition also helps RHP grow and become more efficient by bringing down the average cost of managing and maintaining our homes. We’re committed to delivering more affordable homes in this area, providing a high quality local management service and continuing to work in partnership the Council to help meet the needs of Kingston’s residents.”
RHP aim to invest £250M into providing new affordable homes over the next eight years.
This extension of reach into Kingston comes at a time when RHP’s Development team were recently given a place on the borough’s housing subcommittee. RHP looks forward to working effectively with Kingston council to provide more affordable housing in the borough and beyond.
