One Vision Housing helps nearly 100 future home owners get on the property ladder!

Published: 5/9/2019

One Vision Housing (OVH) are delighted to announce they have now successfully helped 91 future home owners get on the property ladder with their Rent to Buy programme.

What is Rent to Buy? Rent to Buy is a Government backed scheme developed to ease the transition from renting to owning a home by providing subsidised rent.

Potential homeowners can rent a newly built home at approximately 20% below market value for up to five years. The idea being that the money saved in rent can be used as a deposit to purchase a home and get perspective buyers on the property ladder.

Since its roll out in 2018, OVH’s Rent to Buy programme completed 91 lettings across six sites in four local authorities including Liverpool, West Lancashire, Cheshire West and Knowsley.

This is what an OVH tenant had to say about the Rent to Buy process:

“In the past my partner and I have found it difficult to save up enough money to put a deposit on a house. The Rent to Buy scheme at Blackbird Grange has been perfect for us as we can save for a deposit while having the added benefit of living in a new-build home. We really love the modern specs and it was great to be able to pick our preferred plot and kitchen!” –Shanna (Rent to Buy Tenant)

Be sure to keep an eye out for our future Rent to Buy opportunities coming up in Birkenhead, Chorley and St. Helens.
