What is Staircasing?
Staircasing is when you buy more shares in your homeownership property (increasing your equity and reducing your rent charges).
- Firstly, please read all of the 'Step by Step Guide' below for information on the process of staircasing.
- Once you have read the information, at the bottom of the page is a link for you to log in to your MyHightown account to begin the process.

I'm ready to start the staircasing process
When you have chosen your two surveyors, please:
- Notify Hightown that you want to staircase via the online portal, MyHightown. Please complete and submit the form telling us of your intention to staircase and provide all information required (including if you have made any alterations/improvements to your home).
- Pay £385 (including VAT) administrative fee - this can be done by calling the Home Ownership team on 01442 292535.
Once we have received your online form and payment, we will formally instruct the two valuers to begin the staircasing process.
To contact the Home Ownership team, please email email@example.com or call 01442 292535.
