Shared ownership housing

Want to get on the Property Ladder? We have almost 200 shared ownership properties across Norfolk, Essex and South Cambridgeshire. The properties range from flats to 4-bedroom houses.

How does it work?

You buy a 25%, 50% or 75% share in your home and pay a modest rent on the remaining share. When your financial circumstances change you can increase your share until you own your home outright. If you're considering shared ownership, please remember that you'll be responsible for the full cost of maintaining and repairing your home.

Leasehold schemes for the elderly

We own and manage 2 leasehold schemes for retired people. These are homes for sale rather than rent. Our schemes are located in:

  • New Costessey, Norwich
  • Hoveton, North Norfolk


How does it work?

You buy the lease of the home at 70% of full-market value. Both schemes have part-time caretakers, a 24-hour alarm system and a repairs service for plumbing, heating and electrical works. Details of what is covered is contained in your lease. We'll also carry out structural works and planned improvements such as replacement windows, when needed. You pay a service charge based on the actual costs we incur. When you sell you'll also pay into a fund that covers the cost of future major works.
