Intermediate Rent and Rent to Buy

Intermediate rent

Intermediate rent is a subsidised rental scheme, which is designed to help first time buyers to save up for a deposit to buy an affordable home. Rents are usually 20 percent less than what you would expect to pay for a similar property in the same area, if you were renting privately. Eligibility criteria applies.

Rent To Buy

Rent to buy is a ‘stepping stone’ to Shared Ownership, for those who are not already in a financial position to purchase a shared ownership home. Selected homes are offered to rent on an Intermediate Market Rent basis for a fixed period of time (e.g. 5 years). You may then be given the opportunity to purchase one of our homes under shared ownership.
