Your Options

We offer a range of housing options to help first time buyers. We assist social tenants, serving Ministry of Defence personnel, those considered a housing priority by their local council and other first-time buyers and second steppers. If you are priced out of a suitable home in your local housing market (as defined by your income - read on for more information on income eligibility) you are potentially eligible to buy.

Options to Buy - buy a share in a brand new or resale home from Metropolitan. You pay a mortgage on the part you own and a subsidised rent on the part you don’t own. You can buy more shares until you own your home outright or you can choose to stay as you are. Information on staircasing and our other after sales services for Metropolitan home owners.

Options to Sell - for shared owners looking to sell.

Options to Rent - there are two options available to rent a home at a discounted rent as a stepping stone to buying in the future.
