If you need help to buy your own home

Register for affordable home ownership

Affordable housing includes rental properties and those that are available to buy using shared ownership, shared equity or discounted market sale.

Shared ownership properties are part owned and part rented with a housing association. The housing association usually sells you between 25 and 75% of the property. You will then pay rent on the remaining share. Sometimes it is possible to purchase additional shares in the property later.

You can only purchase a property under this scheme if:

  • your household income is less than £80,000
  • you are able to secure a mortgage or have enough capital to fund your share of the property
  • the property will be your sole residence

A number of housing developments are underway in Broadland which will increase the supply of housing which is affordable to local people.

Priority to purchase an affordable home in our district will be given to those with a local connection, for example; those living or working in the district.

Your eligibility will need to be assessed when you apply for a property.

Initially, if you wish to be considered for shared ownership, shared equity or discounted market sale properties in Broadland please apply to Help to Buy: East and South East.
