Are you renting privately, from the Council, or a Housing Association, or living with relatives?

Are you working or training and do you aspire to be a homeowner in the future?

Do you need to move and hope to buy a home in the future? 

A new Rentplus scheme in Northampton is now taking applications from local people who are working or in training, until Thursday, 1 March.

Rentplus Kingsthorpe is a brand new development of 48 energy efficient houses in Northampton that will be ready for families to move into between April - July 2018, and is being managed by Wellingborough Homes (a locally based Housing Association).

The scheme offers local people 5 year renewable tenancies at an affordable rent (with no maintenance responsibilities whilst renting), and the gift of a ten percent deposit when the tenants buy their home.

This gives tenants the time to save for a deposit and build a strong credit history to support their mortgage request when they proceed to buy the property.

Wellingborough Homes is currently accepting applications for people to move in to the first 17 Rentplus Kingsthorpe houses. Applications must be submitted by 5pm on 1 March 2018. This will allow enough time for Wellingborough Homes to check whether applicants qualify for the scheme.

Anyone who qualifies but is not offered one of the first 17 houses (or submits an application after 1 March 2018 and qualifies) will be considered for the next homes as they become available.
