What Is A Housing Co-operative?

A housing co-operative is a model of housing whereby tenants, who make up the members of the co-operative, have control over the property they call home. Through the co-operative’s ownership of the property, members are directly responsible for running it.

“Hearing more about SEASALT is so inspiring. They are leading the way tackling a really huge problem of exorbitant rents, unresponsive landlords and poor quality student housing at the source. I am really proud that the first student led housing cooperative in the South East will be in Brighton. I hope its profile will increase so more students take the initiative to set up housing co-operatives around the country.”
