Midlands-based housing association Accord has taken on the first eight affordable homes it will be managing on behalf of Legal & General (L&G).
Accord is one of 14 housing associations partnering with L&G to manage its pipeline of 3,500 affordable homes across the UK. These eight two-bedroomed properties in Wolverhampton mark the start of Accord and L&G’s partnership.
Sara Woodall, executive director of Homes and Communities at Accord, commented on the development, saying: “We are really pleased to take on the management of these new affordable homes in Wolverhampton on behalf of Legal & General.
“Accord has over 1,400 homes in the Wolverhampton area, and we know these eight new properties will be very well received by local people needing, safe affordable homes.”

Accord recently secured planning permission for ‘virtually plastic-free’ affordable homes in Redditch.
The development on Edwards Street forms part of its £25m affordable housing regeneration scheme in the town centre.
Accord has also made changes to its executive team, seeing Executive Director of Homes and Communities Sara Woodall broadenening her role to include responsibility for the organisation’s assets and property maintenance teams, and Mark Patchitt taking on the role of Acting Executive Director of Regeneration.
