Balconies come in all shapes and sizes – from the smallest Juliet to the most spacious deck. Yet, while we all treasure our own bit of private outdoor space, our balconies are often left unloved and underappreciated. Regardless of size, this space is unbelievably versatile and can be transformed into the most beautiful of havens…

Red Loft currently have properties available through:
Shared Ownership (Part Buy, Part Rent)
A large proportion of our properties are available through Shared Ownership. This enables purchasers to buy one of our homes available, in stages. In simple terms you buy a percentage from as little as 25% and then in time – as your circumstances change – the purchaser can increase their shares until they own 100% through a process known as staircasing. There is a subsidised rent payable on the share unowned which will eventually fall away when 100% is owned.
Older Persons Shared Ownership
This option enables buyers to own 75% of the home, there is usually no rent payable on the remaining share, however this option is limited to purchasers aged 55+ and staircasing is often restricted. Ask us about Hounslow School or Dillion Court if you are interested in finding out more information.
Help to Buy Equity Loan
In London, the Help to Buy equity loan available is 40% with an equity loan of 20% outside of London; the loan is based on the total value of the property and is to be used in conjunction with a 5% deposit from the purchaser. The loan is interest free for the first five years and will then have an interest payable from year six. The purchaser owns 100% of the property. This option is currently available on Tolhurst Mews in Lenham and Ravensdale & Rushden in Crystal Palace.
A small selection of our homes are available to buy outright, for example Tolhurst Mews in Lenham, Kent. If you are able to afford to purchase the property using mortgage and or savings then you can purchase 100% with no conditions attached.
