What is Home Reach Flex?

Home Reach Flex is a shared ownership scheme that can offer a more affordable way to get onto the property ladder. You buy a share of the home and pay a monthly rent on the unsold share.

 

How does it work?

Home Reach Flex helps make buying a new build home more accessible, with smaller deposits and lower monthly payments that could mean buying a new home is more affordable than you thought.

Your budget will decide the size of the share you buy, not the size of the home. You can initially buy shares from 65% to 75% depending on your affordability. Heylo will become your landlord granting you a 999 year lease and will charge you a rent of 3.25% on the share of the property that you didn’t buy. This means you can live in your home as if you have bought it outright.
