Social HomeBuy
    Thinking about your home investment? Like most people, you've probably thought about buying your home but don't know how you would find the deposit to buy it outright. To help people like you we've introduced Social HomeBuy, where you may be able to buy a share of your home instead.

    Social HomeBuy is a scheme designed to help our tenants buy the home they are already living in. Subject to approval, you could buy your home outright with a discount up to £16,000 or, you can choose to buy a share in your home with a smaller discount depending on the share you buy. If you buy a share, you continue to pay rent on the part you don't own, and you can buy the rest or more shares later on.

    We think that areas which have a mixture or residents, including home owners and both private and social renters, makes for more balanced and sustainable communities. That's why we introduced Social HomeBuy as a way to help more renters become owners and we're targeting the scheme at the following boroughs:

    • Barnet
    • Bracknell Forest
    • Camden
    • Ealing Council
    • Enfield
    • Hackney
    • Haringey
    • Havering
    • Islington Council
    • Newham
    • Reading
    • Slough
    • Tower Hamlets
    • Waltham Forest
    • West Berkshire
    • Westminster
    • Winsor & Maidenhead
    • Wokingham
