halton housing and open door are supporting a newly launched campaign on raising awareness of shared ownership

We’re supporting a National Shared Ownership campaign

20th January 2020

We’re proud to be supporting a new national campaign by the National Housing Federation promoting shared ownership alongside our commercial subsidiary, Open Door.

The campaign is designed to raise public awareness of Shared Ownership through a three-year advertising drive, across print, social media, digital to outdoor advertising and there’s a new website which is a first of its kind for shared ownership (SharedOwnership.net). 

Shared ownership is another way to buy your home. You buy a percentage and pay rent on the rest. The remaining shares are owned by a Housing Association — however you’re living there, you can decorate it to your tastes, and you decide when to purchase more shares or when to sell. Buying a percentage means a smaller deposit and smaller mortgage. It’s a sooner first step on the ladder for lots of people. Usually, you can also carry on buying shares, to own it 100%. 

 

halton housing and open door are supporting a newly launched campaign on raising awareness of shared ownership

Open Door is the brand for all Halton Housing’s Shared Ownership properties & the face of the private profit-making, subsidiary OSUK which currently provides in the region of 300 private rented homes across the North of England (including Halton) and new build homes for sale. 

Open Door have a dedicated friendly Sales team handling a wide range of housing products including Outright Sale, Shared Ownership and Rent to Buy. The team will talk you through options, all with a view of getting customers into home ownership. 

Rob Poole, Managing Director said: “Shared Ownership is a great option for first-time buyers, growing families looking for a bigger home and anyone looking for an affordable way to get a foot on the property ladder. It allows customers who have been stuck in a private rental trap with little security of tenure to finally purchase their own home, set down roots and build for a successful future”. 

Open Door are delighted to be working with the National Housing Federation to promote the benefits of Shared Ownership to a wider audience and help give it the profile it deserves. We have a variety of homes available for sale in the borough of Halton and look forward to the continued development of Shared Ownership homes in the future”.
