Renting to shared ownership

Moat at Alkerden Gateway

Emma and her husband needed to find a home for their family of 4 after the house they were renting was sold. Emma's dad told her about shared ownership and now they are the proud owners of a 3-bedroom townhouse at Alkerden Gateway in Ebbsfleet.


“I kept checking Moat’s website to see when the houses were being released for reservations after I spotted them. I couldn’t believe it when Ben told me we had been successful. There were so many people who wanted them and there were only 4 houses – we got so lucky!

The townhouse is so much bigger than the place we had when we were renting. We’ve moved the furniture from the living room of our old place into the new one and it still looks empty.

The kids are already calling the new house ‘home’ and have been telling their teachers that they have moved to ‘Bluewater’! Although they could have their own rooms, they want to share a bedroom and use the other bedroom as a playroom.

The garden is smaller than where we lived before, but it means I can keep an eye on the children when they are playing outside.

We love going out for walks in the evening to the park and back. We wouldn’t have thought of doing that where we lived previously. Myself and my husband like to go up to London so having Ebbsfleet International on our doorstep is a bonus.

Ben and Becca in the sales team were brilliant throughout the buying process. I asked so many questions and they were so quick at replying. They even helped me to chase solicitors. I would recommend Moat if you wanted to get onto the property ladder with shared ownership.
