What is staircasing?
If you’re a shared owner you can buy more shares in your home through a process called staircasing.
You choose when you staircase. You’ll reduce the rent you pay on the share you don’t own. You get the chance to own your home outright and stop paying rent altogether.
Do you want to sell your home?
Having already bought a home, you’ll know what’s involved. You’ll understand the importance of being prepared.
You own 100% of your home and you’re able to advertise on the open market with an estate agent.
Your lease requires that you give us the opportunity to find a suitable buyer for your home within an eight week period before you're able to market your home with an estate agent yourself.
Responsibilities and rights
Your lease or transfer agreement will tell you what your responsibilities and rights are.
The agreement you signed when you bought your home is a legal document that explains the details. It sets out who the freeholder is, the ground rent payments and the terms of your lease.
Service charges and rent
As a homeowner you'll need to keep up with mortgage repayments and day-to-day household bills.
There are also other costs to bear in mind when planning your household budget as well.
Before considering improvements, additions or alterations to your home, check your lease agreement to see what is allowed.
Some alterations need written consent from us before you begin. We also offer guidance on what improvements are and are not taken into consideration when valuing your home to put it up for sale.
