Homes to buy

Each year, we aim to build 150 new affordable homes. Some of these will be sold outright and some may be available through our shared ownership scheme. We work with local developers to build quality, affordable homes in the heart of communities.

Buying a property outright through a housing provider like us can have many benefits, not least the price. Our homes for sale are ideal for first-time buyers and investors so you’ll probably have to be quick – they are normally sold ‘off plan’ and people move in as soon as they’re ready.

Shared ownership is also a great way to get on the property ladder. It is a part-buy, part-rent scheme designed to help people who are not in a position to buy a home outright on the open market.

Shared ownership allows you to buy a share of a home (a minimum of 25%) through cash or a mortgage and make rent repayments on the rest to us, with the opportunity to increase your share over time. You can progress to full ownership in most homes.

As we will still own some of the property, you will have some responsibilities to look after the property and will have to tell us if you’re planning any improvement works to it.

Have a look at our properties currently available for home ownership and apply if you see a home you're interested in. Consideration will be given to your current accommodation, your ability to buy a house on the open market and your ability to meet the costs of shared ownership without any hardship.
