Affordable home ownership schemes

We offer alternative affordable home ownership schemes. 

B3Living is striving to create opportunities for people to own their homes in the Borough of Broxbourne and surrounding areas.

We have a Development team who is overseeing new build projects in and around the Borough. We will be incorporating schemes such as Shared Ownership into some of these new developments.

B3Living also has existing shared ownership properties. These properties can come up for sale on the open market, or we will look to nominate a buyer whose criteria is local to the area through the Help to Buy website.

To see if we have any shared ownership properties available please click here. If you are still interested in buying your own home there are alternative providers of affordable home ownership who may be able to assist you with the purchase of a property. Housing providers offer various schemes to help towards purchasing a property. Read our leaflet on Alternative Affordable Home Ownership schemes.

Bedford Pilgrims Housing Association (BPHA) is the Help to Buy agent for the East and South East of England. Housing associations across this area, including B3Living, will be advertising their affordable home ownership schemes through the BPHA website: www.helptobuyeastandsoutheast.uk.com

BPHA offers various home ownership products, including shared ownership new builds, shared ownership resales, Help to Buy Equity Loans, Rent to Buy, Intermediate Rent and Keycare. You will need to complete an application form to be approved for Help to Buy via the website. When on the homepage, just click on the 'How to Apply' button and then at the bottom of the page there is a link to complete an online application form.
