Posted 18 November 2021 by Keith Osborne

There’s a range of properties available under the Home Reach buying scheme at developments across the South West...

Housing provider heylo is teaming up with housebuilders to offer its Home Reach part buy-part rent scheme at a whole range of developments across the South West of England.

Home Reach gives buyers who meet the eligibility criteria the opportunity to ‘part buy-part rent’ a brand new home. You can purchase a share of a new build home (usually starting at 50%) and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder, with heylo as the landlord.
