Mixed Tenure Developments

This Guide is about the management models used and the issues arising for mixed tenure developments.

Mixed tenure developments are where social or affordable housing sits alongside private leasehold flats. Many of these developments may also contain commercial units and possibly freehold houses.

It is essential that developers of these schemes involve a managing agent and the partners for the social housing at as early a stage as possible so that long term sustainable management arrangements can be set up.

It is important that arrangements for information exchange, decision making on design and management strategies, billing and management meetings between managing agents and housing associations are agreed and subsequently maintained.
