Buying your home is a huge investment, so let us give you 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.
Home ownership information

Right to buy
- 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.
Right to acquire
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.
Those eligible for this scheme are usually tenants who started a tenancy with Ongo Homes (was North Lincolnshire Homes) following the transfer of the housing stock from North Lincolnshire Council in February 2007. Further eligibility checks required.
Please note, certain properties and areas are excluded from the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire Schemes, if you would like to find out more please contact the Home Ownership Team.
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 available here.
