At Hyde, we recognise that as London house prices continue to rise disportionally to incomes, many shared owners will find it difficult to purchase their second home and move in to full home ownership. We are aware that some of you may wish to move on due to individual circumstances and Hyde is therefore introducing Second Steps; a Do-It-Yourself Shared Ownership scheme aimed at our existing shared owners in London. The Hyde Group and the Greater London Authority (GLA) are working together to help you buy a home from the open market, on a shared ownership basis and we have a limited amount of funding from the GLA to deliver this pilot scheme.
Subject to eligibility and a financial assessment, applicants can purchase a share in a house in any London Borough up to a maximum value of £395,000. This provides you with the opportunity to move on and buy a house suitable to your current need still on an affordable shared ownership basis. At the same time as buying a home via Second Steps, Hyde will market and sell your property to another first time buyer eligible for shared ownership. You will be able to use the equity from the sale of your existing home to fund the purchase of your new Second Steps property.
If the Second Steps product proves extremely popular, priority will be given to customers seeking to move due to overcrowding.
If you want to move but thought it was out of reach and if this exciting opportunity is of interest please read the eligibility criteria set out in our Second Steps guide at www.hydenewhomes.co.uk/second-steps-and-your-new-shared-ownership-home and if you meet the stated eligibility terms, please complete the online application form and register your interest.
Most people aspire to own their own home and you made that step towards this when you bought your shared ownership home. If your financial circumstances have changed or even if you are looking at re-mortgaging, you may be thinking of buying more shares in your property.
Buying a greater proportion in your home has a number of benefits:
Some leases, mainly in rural areas, restrict the amount of equity you may be able to staircase to. However, we can advise you on this should you wish to consider buying more shares in your property.
Hyde New Homes can support you through buying more shares in your property in the following way:
The costs involved in staircasing sales do vary but below is an approximate guide:
We hope that the above information has given you an insight into the sales service that we can provide our existing shared owners. We would be delighted to offer our expert advice to you so if you would like to chat with one of our Resale Consultants please call 0345 606 1221 or email us at email@example.com

With as many as 68% of Brighton home buyers now coming from London there is increased competition in the coastal town’s property market1. Hyde New Homes has committed to helping buyers take their first steps onto the property ladder in Brighton, by providing hundreds of new build apartments including a range of Shared Ownership options. One young couple who took full advantage of the Shared Ownership opportunity and found their dream starter home are Simon Brading and his wife Anna, with their two children, Ruby (3) and Zoe (1).
Having previously lived in North Laine for 10 years, Simon was extremely keen on staying in Brighton due to the fantastic community and local amenities. “It’s a really nice area, there are plenty of shops and restaurants, and we’re near the beach which is great – especially for the kids. Anna and I began to rent in the area seven years ago after getting married. We’re both songwriters, and I also work in a church at the centre of Brighton so I really feel at home here. It’s a privilege to live in the community that I want to serve.”
After outgrowing their previous home and being priced out of the open market, Simon realised the only way his family could afford to continue living in Brighton was through Shared Ownership. “We wanted a three bedroom home in the centre of Brighton but we couldn’t even afford to rent. After doing some research we realised that we could afford to buy a property under Shared Ownership which has worked out very well for us. We’re currently living in a £437,000 property in the centre of Brighton and there’s absolutely no way that we could’ve afforded that without the Shared Ownership scheme.”
Simon and Anna purchased their three bedroom Shared Ownership apartment in Super B at £153,000 for a 35% share of the property, and with a newborn on the way the family couldn’t be happier. Simon comments, “We were just blown away when we saw it. We love the open plan design of the kitchen and the fact that we actually have a lounge to use as a family. It’s also great that Anna and I get an ensuite.” He goes on to say: “The flat is very light – we saw it in the winter on a rainy day and were still very impressed with how well lit it was, so you can imagine how nice it is in the summer. There are no stairs either which means the kids can run around without endangering themselves.”
With a range of affordable one, two, and three bedroom apartments, Hyde New Homes’ property offering at Super B is perfect for families and young professionals looking to set foot onto the property ladder. Apartments at the development have been designed to fit in with Brighton’s creative atmosphere whilst also delivering a high specification throughout. Residents at Super B benefit from modern amenities including integrated A rated kitchen appliances, thermostatic showers, and under floor heating. Situated just seconds from Brighton station, commuting residents benefit from speedy journey times into the capital, with a trip to London Bridge taking less than an hour.
