First Choice Homes is currently building 2 and 3 bedroom homes locally.

The houses are proposed to be for ‘Rent to Buy’ which is a new tenure to help people onto the home ownership ladder.

  • ‘Rent to Buy’ homes are let to working households at below market rent to give them the opportunity to save for a deposit to buy their first home
  • The homes will be offered for a minimum of 5 years on ‘assured shorthold’ tenancies
  • Tenants must be working at the time of letting and must not have owned their own home previously
  • Rent to Buy homes are not subject to local authority nominations
  • If after the initial 5 years of letting the landlord wishes to sell the property the existing tenants have a right of first refusal to buy at the market value

If you want to register an interest now, you can complete this form. We will need to contact you and assess your eligibility when the properties are due for release to the market.

The completion of this form does not imply or guarantee an offer from First Choice Homes Oldham or a commitment to purchase from you. All applicants will need to be assessed in line with First Choice Homes Oldham's processes when the properties are marketed.
