The Rent to Buy scheme is a discounted rent then buy scheme, offered to support our customers in getting onto the property ladder. 

Rent to Buy

Part-funded by Homes England, the ultimate aim of the scheme is to allow you to take advantage of a reduced market rent for the 5 year term, allowing you to save for a deposit.  After 5 years, if the property is not purchased, the rent will increase in line with the full market rent.

The four eligibility requirements for this scheme are:

  • The property must be your only home
  • At least one member of your household needs to be in permanent employment
  • The joint household income must not exceed £80,000 per annum
  • The rent should utilise 25% - 45% of your household income
  • If you’re an existing homeowner, you may be eligible, if due to a relationship breakdown for example
