Home Reach with Heylo

What is Home Reach?

With Home Reach, you buy a share of your chosen home and pay a low monthly rent on the part you don't buy. You get to choose whether you buy a bigger share of a lower priced home or a smaller share of a more expensive one.*

With the partnership you can initially purchase up to 75% of your chosen home and heylo will become your landlord, granting you a 125-year lease. This means you will be able to live in your home as if you've bought it outright. You can buy more of your home in the future and stop paying rent on that part.

Who is heylo?

Launched in September 2014, heylo has created one of the largest home ownership programmes in the UK, offering a number of different routes to ensure owning your own home is accessible.

Kier Living is working in partnership with heylo to offer Home Reach, a part-buy-part-rent option on selected properties across the country.

Home Reach is simply about helping you get on, climb up and stay on the property ladder.

Home Reach… A more affordable way to buy

Smaller deposit requirements and lower monthly payments make it easier to buy the home you've always wanted.

You decide how much of your home you would like to buy, with shares up to 75% (on a small number of developments there is the opportunity to purchase a lower percentage).

You are able to purchase your share with either cash savings or by taking out a mortgage. If you are taking out a mortgage to finance your share, then you will typically need to allow for at least a 5% deposit. The larger your deposit, the lower your mortgage payments will be.

On the share you don’t own, you will pay rent of 2.75% of the unsold value. This will be paid monthly by direct debt.

Who is eligible for Home Reach?

You are eligible to purchase a Home Reach property in England or Wales if:

  • Your household income does not exceed £80,000 per annum for homes outside of London
  • You have a deposit (at least 5% of the share value)
  • You are a first-time buyer or used to own a home, but cannot afford to buy outright now
  • You currently occupy a shared ownership property and are looking to move
  • The shared ownership property will be your principle and only home
  • You have passed a financial assessment, demonstrating you are financially able to purchase the minimum share value and support the monthly costs

What's included in your Home Reach lease


The lease sets out:

  • A description of the property including its boundaries and a guide to which parts are your responsibility – if a leasehold property, it will also contain any restrictions or obligations flowing from the superior leasehold title, such as the payment of ground rent
  • The start date of the lease and the share that you have bought
  • The amount of rent that you must pay, together with other amounts due under the lease
  • The rent increase, linked to Retail Price Index plus 0.5% each year
  • Your responsibilities as a leaseholder, such as all repairs and maintenance of the property and those of heylo as landlord under the lease, such as building insurance arrangements
  • The method by which you can purchase additional shares to own more of your home in the future
  • The method by which you can move home, either by selling your share or selling the whole property

What are your rights and responsibilities?

You are responsible for all utilities bills, repairs and redecoration of your property. It’s your place, your space – so make it your own!
The only exception would be if you wanted to make any structural changes. For this you would need to apply in writing to heylo outlining the changes you would like to make. heylo will review the application and will be in touch with a decision or requesting more information.

Once you’ve moved in

Once you've moved in, a member of the heylo team will be in contact.

Your welcome letter will outline who your managing agent will be, they will be responsible for collecting your rent and answering any questions you may have about your property and lease as well as guiding you if you decide you would like to staircase or sell.
