We're doing our best to maintain service as usual amidst the challenges presented by the outbreak of Covid-19 but regretfully, there will likely be some delays, particularly for our resales customers. If you're looking to sell your property we are happy to market your home but please be aware it's possible that you will see reduced interest from prospective buyers in the current climate. Make sure to keep yourself updated with the latest government guidance.
Please keep an eye on our Coronavirus (Covid-19) page for further advice and information for our residents/homeowners about how we're dealing with the current climate.
An advantage of Shared Ownership is that you can buy more shares and, in most cases, eventually own your home outright. Buying more shares is known as 'staircasing'.
You can staircase at any time. As you buy more shares in your property, your rent decreases. If you want to buy an extra share, you must first get your home valued. We use this valuation to work out the price of the share.
Before you look any further into staircasing, please make sure to read the update on our building safety programme.
