We are actively managing the evolving impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and following guidance from the government and health organisations, we wanted to reassure you that we are tailoring our events programme to comply with the most up-to-date advice available.
As a result, we have made the decision to take this year’s British New Homes Mortgage Senate online.
The aim of the British New Homes Mortgage Senate remains clear: to drive the new-build agenda at all levels from government to the consumer. Launched in 2014, this event brings together an elite group of the leading and most influential developers, lenders, specialist new-build broker firms, and related services in a meaningful debate to encourage greater consensus and positive action to drive the future activity of this increasingly important sector of the market.
This year, the event will run from around 10am until 3.30pm on Thursday 8th October.
In the morning, a suite of presentations will be broadcast direct into your homes, and in the afternoon you will be able to meet our lender sponsors in separate boardroom sessions.
You can ask questions of the morning’s expert speakers via our chairperson, Adrian MacDiarmid, lender relationship director at Barratt Homes, and in the afternoon lender sessions you can chat to the sponsors directly.
The agenda has yet to be finalised, but will address the challenges posed by this year’s lockdown, the impact on the development of the new-build sector, borrower finances and the extension of Help to Buy. We will consider whether the current circumstances will expedite the move to a more technology-based buying process, and look further ahead to the role of new construction methods. We will also hear the outlook from one of the UK’s largest housebuilders, and how the pandemic has affected their strategy.
Access to the online Senate is still restricted to personally-invited delegates, with developers, broker firms and lenders represented at the most senior level to take part in this industry-shaping event.
We will be in touch closer to the time with instructions for getting the most out of The British New Homes Senate 2020 Online. In the meantime, do contact us if you have any questions.
