Aspiring home-owners from across East Northamptonshire will be able to find out more about how they can buy their first home at a tailor-made event this weekend.

The event, which is organised by East Northamptonshire Council (ENC), will provide people with everything they need to know about shared ownership, as well as showcase which homes are available in the area with partner housing associations - Wellingborough Homes, NCHA and the Longhurst Group.

Taking place on Saturday (October 6) from 10.30am to 1pm at Thrapston Plaza, the event is an opportunity for people to find out more about how they can get on the property ladder.

Mortgage advisors, colleagues from ENC, Wellingborough Homes, Spire Homes and NCHA will be on hand to offer advice and guidance on shared ownership, including how to apply to buy on a shared ownership basis and what the mortgage and monthly payments could be.

ENC leader Cllr Steven North said: “We are delighted to be working with our housing association partners to deliver an event that will provide people with everything they need to know about shared ownership.

“I would encourage anyone who is looking to get their foot on the property ladder or thinking about purchasing their first home to come and speak with staff and find out more about the opportunities available to them.”
