Buying a home

We build a range of high quality new homes for local people, some of which are available for shared ownership or private sale.   There are also two schemes that may help you buy the property you are currently renting from Golding Homes and you can find out more here.

Shared Ownership

Shared ownership is a part buy, part rent scheme aimed at helping those on low to middle incomes get their first step on the property ladder.  Anyone who cannot afford to buy a suitable home on the open market can apply. Visit our Golding Places website to find out more about Shared Ownership and to see a list of developments and properties available. 

Right to Buy

This scheme allows tenants to buy their council or housing association home at a discounted price. The Right to Buy is personal to an individual and to be eligible you will need to have been a secure tenant of Maidstone Borough Council and were living in the property when it transferred to Golding Homes. If you would like to buy your flat we have a handy Advice Sheet which will help guide you through the process. For more information about Right to Buy read more here ...

To be eligible you must be an assured tenant of Golding Homes, with at least two years, and in some cases five years, previous tenancy with a public sector landlord. Read more ...
