Across North Yorkshire and York there are a number of different schemes to help people buy their own home, especially working households who might be in a position to buy their own home with some assistance.
Generally, these schemes are run by Housing Associations and go under the generic names of Low Cost Home Ownership. There are different schemes available, such as:
Housing Associations may choose to advertise such properties through the Low Cost Home Ownership (LCHO) section of this web site.
Where a home for sale is advertised we invite bids (you to express your interest) from applicants.
Each scheme has different eligibility criteria and you would need to contact the relevant local office.
