Tenants joining the event will be able to take part in a webchat to speak to an advisor about schemes including:

  • House Purchase Grant (Portable Discount) – Buying a property of your choice, on the private market anywhere in the UK or abroad, with the assistance of a means-tested grant to provide gap funding of up to £120,000 towards the purchase. Alternatively, the grant can be used to extend the UK home of a relative or used as a deposit towards a shared ownership property in the UK.
  • Shared Ownership – Part-buy, part-rent a new build property within the borough (tenants can use their HPG towards this option and will receive priority).

You will be able to receive advice on whether you are eligible for the schemes, plus further information on how they work and how you can apply.
