Affordable Housing

What is Affordable Housing?

Affordable housing is housing that is rented or sold at below market-rates. It comes in various forms:

  • Social rented accommodation - where the landlord is a Housing Association.
  • Shared-ownership - where you buy a percentage of a property and pay rent on the remainder.
  • Shared-equity - where you buy a percentage of a property with a mortgage and the rest of the property with a discounted loan.

If you are looking for affordable housing please see finding somewhere to live.
