Buy a home

We want to help local people get on the property ladder. There are now several more affordable routes to home ownership than just buying outright.

Shared ownership

If you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home, shared ownership offers you the chance to buy between 25% and 75% of the home’s value, and pay a reduced rent on the remaining share.

First time buyers loan

Our first time buyers loan scheme can help first time buyers get on the property ladder.

Retirement properties for sale

We own a number of private retirement properties for people aged over 55 to buy.
