We can help, whether you're a first time buyer or a current home owner looking to move somewhere new. Buying a home could be easier than you think, and there are lots of incentives that could help you. We can also guide you every step of the way. Visit the Orbit Homes website for more information.

Help to Buy shared ownership

Help to Buy shared ownership makes buying a new home easier and more affordable. Simply purchase a share in a new home and pay rent on the part you don't own. In the future you can increase the share you own until you’ve bought your home outright. Visit the Help to Buy page for more information.

Shared Ownership Resales

If a current shared owner decides to sell their share in one of our homes, we help them to find a buyer and contact interested parties. If you are interested in finding available shared ownership resale properties, please visit the following websites:

Your new home is within reach. Selected Orbit homes are now available on 95% mortgages through the Government-backed NewBuy scheme. Visit the Orbit Homes buyers guide for more information.

Help To Buy equity loan

Independent living

We have a range of new homes designed for the over 55s. These come with access to communal facilities, as well as the option to have extra care at home, if and when you need it. Visit the independent living pages for more information.
