Every property counts

There are many reasons why properties lie empty. Some owners have been too busy with work and family commitments to get to grips with the issue. For others, the cost, complexity and risk associated with the refurbshment may seem overwhelming. It‘s not easy to get a project off the ground: commissioning vital surveys, navigating the planning system, or finding reliable contractors.

That’s where Roots can help. We’ll offer our professional evaluation of your property and we’ll discuss the refurbishment options with you. So, if you’d like to know how you could help solve the housing crisis and get things moving, call ROOTS for an informal chat.


ROOTS is a community housing project created and operated by the CIS Group specifically to provide homes to those in need of quality affordable housing.

At ROOTS, we are working with councils throughout the UK to tackle the problems arising from empty and abandoned properties in the private sector. We will create quality homes to help alleviate the chronic shortage of affordable housing.

The shortage of decent, affordable homes is affecting people right across the country and for England as a whole, households in temporary accommodation have increased substantially from 55,320 in 2012/13, to 77,220 in 2016/17 and these figures are predicted to continue rising.



We believe that everyone deserves somewhere to call home.


Is to help local people to stay local.

Roots Values:

We believe that a home is not just a roof - home is a place where you belong. It provides you with security and the opportunity to establish roots. It is somewhere you care about.
