Shared ownership could be your first step onto the property ladder in Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire or Bedfordshire.

This home ownership scheme allows you to buy a share in your home (normally 50%) and rent the remaining share from Hightown at a subsidised rate. Over time, you can buy more shares in your home.

You can use our property search tool to find the latest Hightown shared ownership homes available near you.
