Options For Everyone
The following home ownership schemes are available to everyone, but priority may be given to certain groups such as key workers or council tenants.
You may be eligible for other housing options such as Shared Ownership, Help to Buy and First Dibs for Londoners. For further information see the Buying an affordable home pages on the Mayor of London's website (external website).
New Build HomeBuy (formerly known as Shared Ownership)
New Build HomeBuy allows you to part-buy, part-rent a newly built property owned by a housing association. A minimum income is required, but this is calculated on an individual basis.
Please also visit our dedicated Shared Ownership page.
Rent to HomeBuy
Rent To HomeBuy allows you to rent a new build property from a housing association at a discount (usually 80 percent of the market rate) for up to five years. After this period you have the option to buy your home as part of the New Build HomeBuy scheme (see above).
Home Ownership for people with Long term Disabilities (HOLD)
This scheme offers increased assistance if you have a long term disability and wish to buy a New Build HomeBuy property.
