359 properties spread
across the East Midlands

A range of affordability

The Horizon Portfolio consists of 359 properties spread across the East Midlands. The properties are a mixture of low-rise blocks of flats, houses and bungalows.

The purpose of Horizon is to provide good quality accommodation at affordable rents for people employed in the local area. The properties are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreements for a minimum of 12 months, with most tenants staying much longer.

All of the properties are close to local amenities with easy access to town centres and communal areas and grounds are beautifully kept.

The development in Ollerton, intended for those over the age of 55, consists of two small blocks of flats and 36 bungalows set in a gated estate. There is a Community Centre on site which is run by the residents themselves.

"Mears manages the properties, from advertising their availability through to deposits and rent collection."

Management services provided to tenants are not charged in addition to rents, providing high quality homes with no hidden extras.
