Help to Own Your Home

Whether you are looking to get onto the housing ladder or move up it, there are a number of schemes designed to make buying a home more affordable.

Visit the Own Your Home Government website for more information.

Shared Ownership: new-build and re-sales

Shared Ownership is designed for those who cannot afford to purchase a property on the open market.

This scheme allows you to purchase a percentage share of a property whilst renting the remaining share from the housing association selling the property.

You can then choose to purchase further shares to increase your ownership of the property.

This scheme can be available on new-build and also second hand properties, which are referred to as re-sale shared ownership.

These are homes previously purchased through the scheme and now looking to be sold.
