Buying your home is a serious financial commitment. It is likely to be the biggest single investment you'll ever make so you need to know as much information as possible to help you make the right decision.
There are three ways to buy your home from us. If you are looking to buy the property you are currently renting from us, you can look at the Right to Acquire or Right to Buy schemes. Alternatively, if you'd like to buy one of our brand new properties, you may be eligible to do so under the Shared Ownership scheme.
Are you looking to get onto the property ladder, but can't quite afford it? Our shared ownership scheme has been designed specifically for those who have a small deposit available but can't quite afford the mortgage on 100 per cent of a home. Buying a Shared Ownership property gives you the chance to buy a share of your home (between 25-75% of the property value) and pay rent on the remaining share. As and when you can afford to, you can buy bigger shares and eventually own 100% of your home. Have a look at the properties we have availabe here.
If you are a permanent Ongo Homes tenant with a secure tenancy, you may have the Preserved Right to Buy. Here is some more information about the Right to Buy Scheme.
Those eligible for this scheme are usually tenants who held a tenancy with North Lincolnshire Council and then transferred to Ongo Homes (was North Lincolnshire Homes) in February 2007. Further eligibility checks required.
If you are a permanent Ongo Homes tenant with an assured tenancy, you may be eligible for the Right to Acquire scheme. You need to have been a tenant with us for at least 3 years. Here is some more information about the Right to Acquire Scheme.
