Housebuilders’ affordable housing partner of choice

Sage strives to be your affordable housing partner of choice. We want to work with the best housebuilders and developers to provide high-quality homes for low-cost rent and shared ownership across England.

Sage is on track to deliver our ambitious target to acquire at least 20,000 homes by 2022. We have already funded the delivery of 7,000 homes. We predominantly acquire homes from developers who are delivering affordable homes under S106 agreements.

Why should you choose Sage as your affordable housing partner? We have a unique offering amongst registered providers: 

  • Certainty – every offer we make is fully signed off by our funding partner
  • Speed – we can deliver a fully authorised offer within 2 weeks and set the target of moving from heads of terms to exchange within 8 weeks
  • Ease – we work to standard development agreements and our in-house legal team liaises with conveyancing firms to ensure smooth contractual process
  • Flexibility – we are comfortable with varied contract payment structures – golden brick, turnkey, land led and proposals to help expedite development, whilst reasonably protecting both parties’ interests
  • Strong connections – we operate across England and have excellent relationships with local authorities, founded upon our commitment to honour the spirit and letter of planning and nomination agreements
  • Variety of scale – we undertake projects from tens to hundreds of homes
  • Excellent estate and resident management – award-winning Places for People manage our homes across England, but we are open to working with local RPs where appropriate.
  • Partnership working – our in-house project management team works closely with your site teams to ensure an efficient handover process
