SIMON BROOKE, Head of Policy with Cluid Housing Association chats with Ronnie O’Brien. Simon explains that Housing Association’s are independent, not for profit charities that provide social housing for people on housing waiting lists.

Simon also discusses the ‘mortgage to rent’ scheme which targets people who are experiencing mortgage difficulties. In order to qualify for the scheme you have to be in negative equity.

The housing association buys the house from the bank at the current market value, then rents the house to the owners who rent to buy. Based on the same system of rent as the local authority uses.
