Part-buy, Part-rent

 

What is Home Reach?

Home Reach allows buyers of new homes to purchase a share of their chosen home and pay a low monthly rent on the part that isn't purchased.

HOW IT WORKS

More

What is Home Reach?

With our Part-buy, Part-rent scheme, you get to choose whether you buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive one.

With the Linden Homes partnership, you can initially purchase up to 75% of your chosen new shared ownership house and Heylo will become your landlord, granting you a 125-year lease. This means you will be able to live in your home as if you've bought it outright. You can buy more of your home in the future and stop paying rent on that part. Home Reach is only available on selected homes at certain developments. Please contact on of our sales consultants to find out more.

 

Who is heylo?

Launched in September 2014, heylo has created one of the largest homeownership programmes in the UK. Offering buyers several different Part-buy, Part-rent schemes, heylo aims to make owning a home possible.

Home Reach is simply about helping you get on, climb up and stay on the property ladder with new shared ownership houses.

 

Home Reach... A more affordable way to buy

Smaller deposit requirements and lower monthly payments make it easier to buy the new home you've always wanted.

With Home Reach's Part-buy, Part-rent scheme, you decide how much of your home you would like to buy, with shares up to 75% (on a small number of developments there is the opportunity to purchase a lower percentage).

You can purchase your share with either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, you will typically need to allow for at least a 5% deposit. The larger your deposit, the lower your mortgage payments will be.

On the share you don't own, you will pay rent of 2.75% of the unsold value. This will be paid monthly by direct debit.

For example...

 
Property Value £150,000 £200,000 £250,000 £300,000 £350,000
50% Share Value £75,000 £100,000 £125,000 £150,000 175,000
10% Deposit £7,500 £10,000 £12,500 £15,000 £17,000
Mortgage(3.5% interest rate) £67,500 £90,000 £112,500 £135,000 £157,000
Monthly Mortgage Payments £341 £455 £569 £676 £789
Monthly Rent £172 £229 £286 £344 £402
Monthly Combined Cost £513 £684 £855 £1020 £1190
Indicative Income Requirement £20,000 £26,000 £33,000 £37,413 £43,536

Figures above are based on a 25 year repayment mortgage and a Home Reach lease with an initial rent of 2.75% on the unpurchased property value increasing by RPI + 0.5% each year. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up with payments on your mortgage or shared ownership lease. Additional service charges may be payable on properties with communal facilities or services. You will also need to consider the responsibilities and associated costs involved with owning a home (such as insurance and maintenance).
