Novantie – DGHP’s mid-market rent programme

Novantie Limited was set up in 2008, as a subsidiary company of DGHP Ltd.  It is a company limited by shares, which are wholly owned by DGHP Ltd.  It is a not a registered social landlord and is non-charitable.

As a subsidiary of DGHP, Novantie works in accordance with DGHP’s vision, values and strategic objectives.

The company is run by a board of directors comprising of three DGHP Board Members and two Independent Members.  The Chairperson of Novantie is always selected from one of the three DGHP Board Members and is currently David McMillan.

Novantie’s company registration number is SC342899.  Any correspondence should be forwarded to its Registered Office at Grierson House, The Crichton, Bankend Road, Dumfries. DG1 4ZS.

What Novantie does

Novantie’s overall purpose is to undertake commercial and other activities that will generate profits to further the objectives of DGHP in providing high quality housing and services to communities throughout Dumfries and Galloway.

It carries out activities which for commercial, legal or operational reasons are better performed by a subsidiary organisation.  This includes:

  • The leasing from DGHP and the management of the mid-market rented properties that require Assured Tenancy Agreements which DGHP cannot, for legal reasons provide: and
  • The ownership and management of the 17 commercial shops.

Mid-market rent

This scheme is aimed at those people whose earnings are not quite at a level that allows them to purchase a property or for those that need to or want to rent for a limited period only and can afford to pay more than a social rent.  An example of this is, for those people who would expect to be able to purchase a property in the future and who would be categorised as a low priority in the context of the allocation of any social rented property.

Rents are between those charged for DGHP’s social homes and those charged by private landlords for similar properties.

Mid-market rent homes have a special form of tenancy agreement called an Assured Tenancy Agreement.
