Next Step Homes

Next Step Homes

Next Step Homes was set up to complement the work of Langstane Housing Association by providing shared ownership opportunities for those who want to own a home but who don’t have enough income to buy outright.  Next Step Homes takes part in the Scottish Government’s Mortgage to Rent Scheme.

Mortgage to Rent

If you own your home and are in danger of having it repossessed as a result of financial difficulties you should contact The Scottish Government as they maybe able to help.  Under the Mortgage to Rent Scheme they could arrange for a social landlord such as a Housing Association or Local Authority to buy your home and for you to continue to live there as a tenant.

For more information about this scheme follow the link to The Scottish Government’s Information Booklet  ‘Are you in danger of losing your home?
