This medieval hamlet isn’t just known for its tales and Cathedral, this historical town in the south of England is one teeming with character and culture, and is quite simply, a beautiful location to live.

A Borough Etched in Heritage

It would be quite easy to forget the likes of London’s modernity and superfast pace whilst strolling along Canterbury’s leafy avenues and calm, cobbled city streets. Preceded by its monumental Cathedral and dazzling gardens, open space is certainly not hard to come by. Home to astutely prestigious universities including The University of Kent and Canterbury Christchurch, Canterbury exudes intellectual charm.  From walks along the Roman Walls to tours along the river or rambles through Blean Woods Nature Reserve, there is a charm to Canterbury that will capture your imagination and run away with it.

Seasides and Riverbanks

Canterbury is ideally placed for day trips to the Kent coast or longer outings to Paris via Ashford and the Eurostar as well as being home to two astutely prestigious universities including The University of Kent and Canterbury Christ Church for the intellectually inclined. And If you desire nothing more than a blissful evening walk along the beach, rosy-cheeked and red-nosed in the fresh sea air, nearby Wentworth Park in Herne Bay is Canterbury’s coastline getaway. A hotspot for Jurassic shark teeth and fossil hunting you can certainly sink your own teeth into some jaw-dropping discoveries. And should the kids tire of dinosaur detecting, an ice cream and a ride on the carousel should do the trick nicely.

Shared ownership explained

Shared ownership is an affordable way to buy a new home. You purchase a share of the property from Moat Homes, with the option to staircase and own the property outright over time. Your mortgage payments go toward your share of the property, as well as subsidised rent for the remainder of the property owned by Moat Homes. Shared ownership is a great option for first-time homebuyers who may not otherwise be able to afford a new home. With shared ownership, you have the opportunity to slowly staircase your way to owning your dream home.

What are the benefits of shared ownership in Canterbury?

Houses are becoming increasingly expensive, making it difficult for many people to purchase a property outright. One way to make homes more affordable is through shared ownership schemes, which allow buyers to purchase a portion of the property and then gradually increase their stake over time. With a shared ownership scheme, buyers require a smaller deposit than they would need to purchase a property outright, making it easier to get on the property ladder. In addition, buyers have the option to staircase up to 100% ownership of the property if they wish. As a result, shared ownership schemes offer an affordable way for people to purchase their own home.

Is Canterbury shared ownership for me?

If you are struggling to save for a deposit or pay monthly mortgage repayments, the Help to Buy scheme could be for you. There are a few requirements that you need to meet in order to qualify, such as having a household income over £80,000 per year and being prepared to pay the costs associated with buying a property, which we estimate to be around £4,000. However, this scheme is currently the best way for people who want to buy their own home but are unable to do so without some financial assistance. With the Help to Buy scheme, you could soon be on your way to owning your own home.
