How the purchase schemes work
The purchase schemes are run by private agencies and housing providers. Schemes become available at various times.
Each scheme is different and has its own rules. For example, some might provide homes at a discounted price, whereas others might provide help towards a deposit to buy a home.
You must fit in band 5 of the waiting list to be able to apply for a purchase scheme.
After you're accepted onto the waiting list
Once you’re accepted onto band 5 of the waiting list, you’ll receive emails when new properties are advertised for sale or when housing purchase schemes become available.
If you are interested in a property you should speak to the company who is advertising it. We support and administer the purchase schemes but are not involved in allocating property.
