LendInvest, the lender and property investor, claims that smaller-scale developers have an important role to play in solving the housing crisis. This announcement comes as the company concludes its second Property Development Academy course.
LendInvest created its Property Development Academy to teach small-scale developers what they need to know in order to construct more homes.
The intensive and hands-on course, which is nonprofit, lasts for two days and takes 25 students through seven practical modules that cover the complete development process. The sessions are guided by academics and experienced advisors who know how to keep these developers on schedule and operating within their allotted budgets.
With the UK Government failing to deliver the number of homes promised, LendInvest claims that smaller-scale developers have a tremendous opportunity available to them. At the most recent Property Development Academy, the company said that these firms will be instrumental in tackling the housing crisis.
John Slaughter, the Home Builders Federation Director of External Affairs, said that the chronic shortage of available homes is a major concern in the UK. He pointed out that more small housebuilders are needed in the market and they need to grow if the goal of delivering more homes is to be met.
Mr Slaughter conceded that the housebuilding industry was not an easy professional endeavour and new entrepreneurs entering the field will benefit from opportunities like the LendInvest Property Development Academy.
