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.
