”We've been wanting to buy our own home for a long time, but always felt it was just out of reach. StrideUp has changed things. We can now buy a home that fits both our needs and our budget.”
Estibaliz & Jose
”I didn’t want to go for a mortgage and borrowing money. StrideUp is a unique solution that offered me freedom to select a property that suits me and allows me to purchase shares of it as I can afford.”
”This is infinitely better than renting...I just wish StrideUp was around a few years earlier and I would have certainly used it and stopped renting much earlier!”
StrideUp...removes the traditional inefficiencies associated with shared ownership models.
…provide(s) an alternative to a mortgage, a form of financing that is increasingly out of reach for many.
…help young people across the country get a footing on the housing ladder.
How can we help you?
How is StrideUp different to a conventional mortgage?
StrideUp is an alternative to getting a conventional mortgage to buy your home. With StrideUp, you own a share of the home you can afford today and StrideUp owns the remaining. This means we can often offer amounts higher than what you might get with a mortgage. But like in a mortgage it’s always your home to live in and enjoy!
What types of properties can I buy?
You pick the home that works best for you. You can buy new builds or existing homes, StrideUp works with terraced houses or victorian conversions and most things in between! We accept open market leasehold and freehold properties across England. Websites like Rightmove and Zoopla are great places to start your search!
Can my parents help me with the deposit?
Yes, absolutely! Don't forget to include it in your deposit amount in your application form.
What’s the difference between StrideUp and Shared Ownership?
Unlike Shared Ownership schemes, StrideUp is a home finance provider, i.e. we don’t build homes, rather we let you pick the home you want and we help you buy it. You don’t need to go to a bank to get a mortgage, we provide the funds you need to buy your dream home. But like in Shared Ownership, we own a share of the property, which you can always buy back from us when you are able to afford it.
What’s the minimum deposit?
Our minimum deposit requirement is 10% of the total property value.
Is StrideUp regulated?
Yes! Strideup is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. For further details, please refer to the FCA register.
