Right to Shared Ownership will give many social housing tenants the opportunity to purchase a stake in their home and take their first step into home ownership.

At Budget we announced £12.2 billion of investment to build affordable homes, which is the biggest cash investment in affordable housing for a decade.

As a condition of this funding, homes built with it must have the Right to Shared Ownership attached.
