If you rent your home from us, you may be able to buy it at a discounted purchase price, depending on the type of tenancy and property you have.
This may be possible through:
The government plans to change the rules around buying your rented home by extending the Right to buy to more housing association tenants and increasing the discounts. The Government have announced a delay in the roll-out of the new Voluntary Right to Buy scheme until at least 2019 and the existing rules given here will still apply until at least 2019. We will update this as we know more about Government plans.
Shared ownership, or part-buy part-rent, is where you buy a share of a shared ownership property and pay rent on the rest. You can buy more shares when you can afford to so. In most cases, you can eventually own your home outright if you want to.
You can’t convert your rented home to a shared ownership one. But our low cost home ownership arm, Waterloo Homes, offers new homes to buy through shared ownership.
