Affordable living is low cost social housing ranging from small studio flats to large family homes.  Up to 50% of these properties are let through our Find a Home on-line application system to customers who have some income from employment or private means, such as private pensions.  Affordable living »

The remaining 50% are let through local authority nomination or Choice Based Lettings schemes to customers.  Properties let through the local authority are let to those in housing need through the local authority waiting list and customers solely reliant on housing benefit or universal credit are accepted.  You can find your local council by visiting the local authority finder website – just click here.

There are no fees or charges but rent must be paid in advance when signing for a property.

Outright sale and shared ownership

Properties are also available to purchase, either in full or through shared ownership schemes.  Shared ownership allows you to purchase a share of your home (between 25 and 75% of the property’ value) and pay rent for the remaining share.  You will either need to have enough capital to purchase your share of the purchase price or take out a mortgage to pay for your share of the property.  We will also need to check that the property is affordable for you.  Other restrictions may also apply, for instance you are not allowed to have interest in any other property and are not allowed to sub-let the property.
