A young teacher has been able to take that all important first step onto the property ladder by applying for Shared Ownership with Hightown Homes.
After signing up to Hightown’s shared ownership scheme, 27-year-old primary school teacher Lizzie Battams was able to move out of her parent’s home, and now owns a 50% stake in a one-bedroom maisonette in Hemel Hempstead. She rents the remaining share at a subsidised rate and can increase her stake in the property over time.
“When I found out that my offer was accepted, and I was finally going to be a homeowner I felt elated! It’s hard to find somewhere affordable, especially in Hertfordshire so it all felt too good to be true!
