Why
could be right for you
Rent to buy
Start living in a new home
while you save up to buy it

Rent to Buy means you get to live in a great new home while you save up to eventually purchase it with Shared Ownership – rent now, buy later.

The rent you pay is discounted, usually 20% off the market rate. That leaves you with money each month to put aside and save up a deposit for a mortgage.

It’s expected that you’ll buy your first share within 5 years of moving in. Our friendly, expert team will be on hand to take you through the whole process.
