Shared Ownership is a type of affordable homeownership when a purchaser takes out a mortgage on a share of a property and pays rent to a landlord on the remaining share.
Please note: Eligibility criteria may vary per housing association and therefore you should always check the exact criteria with the developer or housing association responsible for the exploitation of the project.
Help to Buy is a government-backed scheme that aims to help first-time buyers onto the property market with an equity loan (also known as shared equity) of up to 40% of the value of a new build home.
There are certain price limits on homes you can purchase with an equity loan. The limit varies for each region in England.

The final phase of the Orchard Village development, Lowen Place Apartments is located in Rainham, a suburban area that lies within the London Borough of Havering. Away from the hustle and bustle of central London, the neighbourhood offers a charming collection of independent shops and authentic restaurants. Steeped in history, Rainham is packed with old buildings, including the majestic Rainham Hall and a Norman church that dates back to 1170. Additionally, the area bursts at the seams with green spaces. A short walk away is Beam Valley Country Park, a nature reserve sprawled across 180 acres that bustles with wildlife. Another leafy sanctuary nearby is Old Dagenham Park, which also provides a wide array of sports facilities, including tennis courts, football pitches, outdoor bowling, and a wheel park.
The new residential complex is placed between four train stations: Dagenham Heathway, Dagenham East, Dagenham Dock, and Rainham. The stations provide access to the District and C2C lines. There is also a new station underway, which will bring the C2C line even closer to Lowen Place Apartments.
Rising up to 5 storeys, the elegantly curving contemporary block creates a fan-shaped structure around a beautifully landscaped courtyard. The crescent building features a warm and light colour palette, accentuated by dark brown details. The brick façade is streaked with long rows of spacious glass balconies. Designed with modern architecture trends in mind, Lowen Place Apartments makes an elegant addition to the neighbourhood with its gentle lines and sophisticated colour scheme.
The unique shape of Lowen Place Apartments envelops a lovely communal courtyard, providing residents with a secluded green space to relax and recharge away from prying eyes. To prevent fire incidents, the units are equipped with smoke detectors. Furthermore, the new residential complex includes undercroft and street parking spaces to ensure that residents have enough space for their vehicles.
Lowen Place Apartments is comprised of one- and two-bedroom homes as well as duplexes. Each apartment comes with a private outdoor space to enjoy some fresh air. The contemporary-style kitchens are fitted with dark oak Symphony units from the Colorado range, white ‘Alaska’ worktops, as well as an integrated Zanussi oven and a 4-ring hob, illuminated by an under-unit LED strip lighting. All apartments feature a white bathrooms suite, equipped with an over-bath shower, a thermostatic mixer, a hand-held shower hose, and a bath-filler. Meanwhile, the en-suites in the duplex apartments benefit from separate shower cubicles.
