Civitas acquires six Southampton supported living properties

By Josh White

Date: Tuesday 06 Jun 2017

LONDON (ShareCast) - (ShareCast News) - Civitas Social Housing announced on Tuesday that, as part of its ongoing investment programme, it had completed the purchase of a portfolio of regulated social housing for a total consideration of £2m, comprising the freehold interest in six supported living properties with 12 tenancies in Southampton.
The London-listed firm said the portfolio was immediately income generating, with an initial net yield in line with the its expectations, and was sourced off-market by the company's investment manager, Civitas Housing Advisors.

Each property was subject to a 25-year lease with a specialist housing association, - Kindstream Housing CIC - focused around supported living, with rents established by the relevant local authority and adjusted annually by CPI inflation over the full period.

Civitas said Kindstream is a registered provider, regulated by the Homes and Communities Agency, and a counterparty to leases within the company's previous portfolios.

"The properties in the portfolio have been adapted for use as specialist supported living homes for tenants with physical and/or mental disabilities or other care needs, and a care provider for each property is in place," the board explained in its statement.

"The portfolio was funded through the company's cash resources.

"In due course, it is intended that leverage will be applied in accordance with the company's stated policy and it is expected that this will further enhance the yield achieved from this investment."

The social homes owned by Civitas are provided on a long-term basis to housing associations with a wide range of tenants who vary in age profile and in the level of support that each receives, the company added.

"By acquiring these social homes, and working with housing associations, Civitas seeks for tenants to experience a stable, high-quality living environment that offers good visibility of tenure and further, the company promotes 'additionality' by the provision of new equity capital that has the potential to be redeployed in the delivery of new social homes.

"Civitas targets the objective of delivering sustainable returns to its shareholders by making socially relevant investments within the regulated social housing sector in England and Wales."
