Affordable home ownership

Affordable home ownership

Also known as shared ownership or help to buy. The Government has created four affordable home ownership schemes to help you take your first steps to owning your own home, if you can't afford to buy on the open market.

You can buy a home using one of the home ownership options, or rent a home at less than the market rent allowing you to save for a future deposit.

How can I apply?

You need to apply on-line or complete an application form available at helptobuyese.org.uk.

Alternatively, you can telephone 03333 214044 for advice and assistance.
