Useful information Back

Shared ownership makes buying a home more affordable. Basically, you buy a share of the home (usually between 25% and 75%) and the rest of it belongs to us, Peaks & Plains Housing Trust.

You pay a mortgage for the part that you own, and you pay us a small amount of rent on the rest. You get all the security of owning your home and you get to make a start on the property ladder, but you only have to pay a fraction of the total asking price.
