Eligibility Criteria


If you are looking to buy in London, you can complete an application at or call our Sales Team on 020 3535 2555 for assistance. If you want to buy outside London, visit or just call us – whichever is easier for you.

To qualify, you need to meet the following criteria:

  1. your annual household income is up to £80,000 (or £90,000 in London)
  2. you’re a first-time buyer, or you used to own a home, but can’t afford to buy one now

Priority is given to buyers who are currently Council or Housing Association Tenants, in eligible roles within the Ministry of Defence and who live or work in the location of the property. In some instances, local authorities may set specific eligibility criteria. Please talk to our Sales Team if you have any questions as we want to make sure Shared Ownership is right for you.

* Income limits may vary
