We’re committed to helping end the housing crisis in north Kent. Part of that commitment is to provide new safe and sustainable homes for local people. See where we’re building homes here.

We’re aiming to build 660 new homes by 2024. During 2021-22, this is what we achieved towards this figure.

Kate Smith* has recently become a homeowner through a shared ownership opportunity with mhs homes and is now settled and enjoying her new home in Lenham.

Kate’s house completed in October 2021 and she was able to move in six months ago. Now she is settled in her new place, she can fully appreciate her spacious home and village life.

“The thing I enjoy most about my new house is definitely the privacy. Whilst my home is just a short trip from Lenham village, it still manages to benefit from the calm and quietness of the surrounding area.

"Being close to the train station means that I have the opportunity of being involved in or away from the madding crowd. It also means my daughter and grandson can enjoy the peaceful location with me whenever they want.

"I would 100% recommend a shared ownership property with mhs homes because of the high standard of the design and space in my home. Sometimes the moving process can be slow and stressful but mhs homes made sure it was worthwhile through the quality of my home.”

The three-bedroom shared ownership home boasts modern fitted bathrooms and kitchens, along with integrated appliances - not to mention a downstairs toilet and en-suite for the master bedroom. These features along with a private garden make it a great option for when family comes to visit, as Kate’s daughter Marie and grandson Zach like to do regularly.
