Shared ownership our popular part rent, part buy scheme

We have fantastic new homes for you to part rent, part buy in neighbourhoods right across the east coast of Lincolnshire.

So if you're struggling to get a deposit together, you're living at home with mum and dad and just don't want to be, then we have perfect homes to help you take that first step on the property ladder.

Shared ownership allows you to buy a share of a property and pay rent on the remaining share which you do not own. Over time, if you wish, you can buy more shares so that eventually you own your home in full. To apply you must be in housing need and unable to buy a home outright.

If you feel shared ownership could be right for you take a look at some of our currently available homes. Occasionally a shared ownership property also becomes available for resale.

Sign up for marketing emails and receive details of our shared ownership, Doer-Upper and investment opportunity properties as soon as they become available!

Who can buy these properties?

To be eligible you must:

  • be at least 18 years of age
  • be living in the UK
  • be in housing need
  • be able to afford a share of a property without hardship
  • meet the required occupancy level for the property to avoid over- or under-occupation
  • not currently own another property (unless your current property is owned on shared ownership terms and you are looking to move to another shared ownership property)
  • be unable to buy a suitable property outright on the open market
  • have some savings to put towards the deposit and purchasing expenses
  • be able to satisfactorily demonstrate your ability to afford the total monthly outgoings of rent, mortgage and service charges required under shared ownership.

Other criteria may apply dependent on property type.
