Affordable Home Ownership

There are a range of affordable home ownership, also known as low cost home ownership, initiatives available or in the pipeline across many locations in the district. These initiatives are aimed at people who are unable to buy on the open market.

With the average house price in the South Holland district rising much faster than local incomes, the opportunity for local households to access the owner occupier market is becoming increasingly difficult. There are a range of initiatives available to help you step onto the property ladder, these include:                

The Right to Acquire allows most housing association tenants to apply to buy their home at a discount.
As a council tenant, find out how you can apply to buy your council home for a discounted price.
If you cannot afford a property at full market value, you may be entitled to a home through the Low Cost Home ownership scheme or the Broadgate Homes Shared Equity Scheme.
Shared ownership is where you buy a share of your home and then pay rent on the remaining share.
