Transforming Empty Houses Into Homes

Since its launch less than a year ago, a third of Lincolnshire Housing Partnership’s Doer-Upper homes have been successfully sold.

At up to 35% off the market value, homes from as little as £18,200* are offered through the landlord’s popular scheme.

Doer-Uppers provide an affordable home ownership opportunity and innovative empty property refurbishment programme enabling local residents to purchase their own home while ‘doing it up’.

Located across North East Lincolnshire, the two, three and four-bedroom homes vary in specification from needing redecoration and upgrading to more comprehensive work.

Since its launch the scheme has proved popular with local people grabbing the chance to get a foot on the property ladder without needing a huge deposit or falling foul of rising property prices.

LHP home ownership manager Sarah Smaller said: “This scheme is proving popular with our customers and it is great to be able to offer a different route in to home ownership.”

The Doer-Upper scheme is open to anyone who lives or works in North East Lincolnshire, who doesn’t own a property already and meets other eligibility criteria.

The scheme is designed for owner-occupiers not property investors, developers or landlords and priority is given to existing LHP tenants and residents living or working in North East Lincolnshire.

The sales do not affect any occupied property and therefore no existing tenant or leaseholder.
