Buying a home

At Mount Green, we are very proud to offer shared ownership properties through the Help to Buy scheme.  Previously known as “Part Buy, Part Rent”, Help to Buy Shared Ownership gives those who cannot afford to buy a property outright an opportunity to step onto the home ownership ladder by owning a share of their home.

Shared ownership is simply part buying, part renting your home. The initial share (25%-75%) is purchased by means of a mortgage from a building society in the normal way. A subsidised rent is then payable to Mount Green for the remaining share.

After one year’s ownership, you can purchase further shares in your home until you own the property outright; helping you into home ownership in manageable stages. Alternatively, you can remain a shared owner indefinitely.

We offer shared ownership sales on new build properties, as well as existing properties.

How do I apply?

To apply for a shared ownership property, you must first register on the Help to Buy website shown below. All of our shared ownership priorities are listed and allocated through this website. You should also register with your Local Authority to be considered for a shared ownership property.
