Your journey towards home ownership starts here and through staircasing, can end with you owning your own home outright.
Otherwise known as part-buy, part-rent, shared ownership is one of the most affordable homeownership options. Buyers are offered the chance to purchase a share of a property between 25% and 75%, whilst paying a subsidised rent to a housing association on the remaining shares. Staircasing gives you the option to increase your shares until you own the home outright.

Shared ownership is an affordable way to enter the property market with a relatively low deposit, about 5%. Even with the mortgage and rent combined, it’s usually more affordable than just plain renting or paying a full mortgage. Unlike renting, will own a percentage of the property and through staircasing, can increase shares and own the property outright. The housing association is responsible for maintenance and repairs – just as if you were a regular tenant.
You will be eligible to buy a home through a shared ownership scheme if your household income is £80,000 or less. You will also need to be either a first-time buyer or a previous homeowner who cannot afford to buy now. Alternatively you will need to be renting from a council or housing association property. In order to purchase or rent a home from us in Essex, Kent or Sussex, you will need to apply to Help to Buy and supply us with your reference number.
