People across the region are getting a step up on to the property ladder, thanks to help from whg.

 The leading Midlands landlord aims to help hundreds of budding home owners purchase their first house in the next few years, through its Shared Ownership scheme.

 Shared Ownership provides a smart and simple way for prospective home hunters to buy their home, by allowing them to purchase a share of a property (usually between 25 and 75 per cent) and pay rent on the remaining share. Further shares can then be purchased until the home is bought outright.

 As part of Shared Ownership Week, which runs from 20th to 26th September, whg is shining the spotlight on its shared ownership properties.

 These include a new luxury development in Penkridge which has been designed exclusively for the over 55s.

 Swallow Place, off Shakespeare Drive features 65 high-quality one and two bedroom apartments, allowing homeowners to free up capital by selling their existing property, while maintaining the security of owning a share in their home.

 Meanwhile reservations are now being taken for three bed Shared Ownership properties at Merlon Court in Stafford and at Copcut Rise in Droitwich.

 Martin Robertson, Corporate Director of Resources and Growth, said: “For many budding home owners raising enough for a deposit for a house seems like an impossible dream.

 “At whg, we have set ourselves a target of selling 225 shared ownership homes by 2020, giving hundreds of people the chance to own their own homes.”

 whg has a dedicated Sales Team which works with high quality developers to get people into brand new homes at affordable prices.
