Affordable home ownership

We offer advice and support if you are trying to get a foot on the home ownership ladder, but cannot afford market prices.

Affordable home ownership options can help you buy a home suitable for your needs. To qualify for any of the options you must:

  • Be unable to afford to purchase a home on the open market
  • Have a household income of less than £40,000 for a single applicant or less than £80,000 for a joint applicant

How to apply for shared ownership

You can see the full range of options available on the government's Shared Ownership Scheme.
