What is staircasing?
Staircasing gives you the option to buy further shares in your property in the future. The greater the share you own, the less rent you will need to pay to Raven and should you staircase to 100% ownership (sometimes restricted on rural schemes), then there is no need for you to pay any rent at all. Should you choose to staircase and own more of a share, then you will have greater benefit from any increase in the property's value.
You will need to register with the Help to Buy agent managing the area at www.helptobuyese.org.uk
Please contact our Sales Team who will be able to guide you through the home buying process. You will be required to complete an initial affordability check with a Financial Advisor to establish that you can meet the costs involved without overcommitting yourself financially, but you will also be expected to maximise the share you can buy. You will also be required to demonstrate a local connection to the area or meet other specific criteria which our Sales Team can advise you on.
