No HOLD’s Barred – everything you ever wanted to know about Home Ownership for people with Long-term Disabilities (HOLD)
Friday, March 22 2019
10.00 – 11.00
Although it’s been around since 1997, helping significant numbers of individuals with a wide range of different disabilities to buy homes of their own, many people still think HOLD’s too good to be true.
So LDE members MySafeHome Limited (who support people who want to buy a home using HOLD) are inviting any questions about this unique Government approved homeownership model that their Managing Director, David Abbey (himself a member of LDE’s Representative Body) will answer in a live webinar.
Whatever you want to know about HOLD this is your chance to find out, in fact, the tougher and more in-depth the questions the better!
Please email yours to Mariana Ortiz mariana.ortiz@LDEngland.org.uk by Wednesday March 20th 2019 indicating if you’d also like to ask it live on the webinar itself on Friday March 22nd. Even if you don’t have any questions we hope you’ll still join us (or watch later) for a unique and truly no HOLD’s barred webinar!
David Abbey has worked in the financial services sector since 1984 and is a fully qualified Financial Adviser.
Back in 1997, he was invited to join a ‘steering group’ to develop a process to enable people with a disability (who also rely on benefits for their income) to buy a home of their own. The result was a unique Government approved shared ownership model, known as HOLD (Home Ownership for people with Long-term Disabilities).
David then established MySafeHome Limited to provide everyone involved in helping people with disabilities realise their dream of home ownership with the support they need and to date almost 1,300 individuals have used HOLD to buy their own home.
Passionate about the personalisation agenda David is the UK’s subject matter expert in homeownership for people with disabilities and in July 2017 was honoured to be elected to the LDE Representative Body.
