Shared Ownership - Part Rent Part Buy
Home Reach... making home ownership accessible
Home Reach part-buy, part rent is where you buy a share of your chosen home and pay a low monthly rent on the part you don't buy. You get to choose whether you buy a bigger share of a cheaper home or a smaller share of a more expensive home.
You can initially purchase up to 75%* of your chosen home and Heylo will become your landlord, granting you a 125-year lease. This means you will be able to live in your home as if you've bought it outright. You can buy more of your home in the future and stop paying rent on that part.
Heylo works in partnership with Miller Homes, offering Home Reach, a part-buy, part-rent option on new build properties.
Home Reach is a more affordable way to buy a home...
Smaller deposit requirements and lower monthly payments make it easier to buy the home you've always wanted.
You decide how much of your home you would like to buy, with shares up to 75%* of your chosen home.
You are able to purchase your share with either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, then you will need to allow for at least a 5% deposit. The larger your deposit, the lower your mortgage payments will be.
On the share you don’t own, you will pay rent of 2.75% of the unsold value. This will be paid monthly by direct debit.
