About the Multi-owned Properties Research Hub

The Multi-owned Properties Research Hub is an exciting new online platform for multi owned properties research. Papers have been submitted by academics, researchers and other sector professionals from around the globe.

The hub was developed by a group of academics and lawyers who saw a need to collate and share research on multi-owned properties across institutional and geographic boundaries. With more people living in multi-owned properties than ever before, governments, practitioners and residents need access to reliable research and opportunities to engage with experts across multiple disciplines.

Sign up to the newsletter on the site to receive new research insights and articles recently uploaded to the hub.
