London-based real estate investment trust Triple Point Social Housing added a further 12 supported housing properties to its portfolio, all of which were immediately income generating.

Comprising of 75 units in total, the properties had an average price of £10.5m before costs and were located in Bournemouth, Durham, Newcastle and Sunderland.

Triple Point signed 20-year fully repairing and insuring (FRI) leases with multiple housing associations, including Auckland Home Solutions, Bespoke Supportive Tenancies and Falcon Housing Association, all of which provide high-quality homes for individuals with learning difficulties, physical and/or mental disabilities and other care needs.

The REIT said that income generated from the leases would be subject to upward rent reviews only and were index-linked to the Consumer Prices Index (CPI).

James Cranmer, a managing partner of Triple Point, said, "We are delighted to be working with a growing number of Housing Associations, which we expect to increase further."

"We have identified a significant number of additional assets which meet the requirements of the company's Investment Objective and Investment Policy, and represent attractive potential investments for the group," he added.
