Shared ownership is an increasingly popular way of helping people get onto the property ladder. It is a part-buy / part-rent scheme that provides a low cost stepping stone towards full home ownership.

The scheme enables people to purchase a share of a property and pay rent on the remaining share. It’s a great way of helping people who might not be able to afford to buy a property outright, to buy a stake in their new home. When you can afford to do so, you can buy more shares in your home which can eventually lead to purchasing your home outright. Located in a beautiful rural village setting the homes enjoy an open aspect to the rear of the properties. All properties are built to Code for Sustainable Homes level three standard. This means they are highly energy and water efficient, produce fewer carbon emissions and are better for both the environment and your wallet. Ribblesdale Drive is a development of two and three bedroom homes for sale through shared ownership.
