    Half Buy Half Rent

    Half Buy Half Rent 19th Mar 07 at 1:54 PM

    Me and my girlfriend are currently renting a house together and feel as though the money we pay for rent etc isnt going anywhere as we are not gaining anything. We are both young (19) so understand that we won't get a mortgage but my mam mentioned something the other day that they are doing at a houseing estate near her called "Half Buy Half Rent" but she couldnt explain it very well.

    Does anybody know what this is or is it something particular to this estate? Also could this be a way for me and my missus to get onto the property ladder?

    All help much appreciated.
