Options for Home Ownership

At Harrogate Housing Association we offer different ways for you to get that first step on to the property ladder and own your own home.

Shared Ownership

Our shared ownership scheme allows you to buy a share in either a brand new property or refurbished property. By obtaining a mortgage on 50% of your home and renting the other 50% you can step onto the homeownership ladder. As your income rises you can then buy more of your home.
