Buying more shares in your home (staircasing)

If you are a shared owner, you can buy extra shares in your home until you own 100% of the property.

To buy extra shares in your home, you need to contact your Leasehold Services Officer on 0207 326 3700.

We will send you information about the process and the valuation fee.

You must pay the valuation fee to enable us to carry out a valuation of your property. 

Once our surveyors have valued your property and you have told us what proportion of your home you are able to afford, we will calculate the cost of that share and the reduction in your rent. 

If you staircase in full to own 100% of the property you will no longer pay a weekly or monthly rent.
