13 – Consider Shared Ownership Opportunities
If you cannot afford to purchase a home altogether, investigate shared ownership programmes that allow you to purchase a portion of a home while renting the other portion from the local government.
These programmes are designed to assist individuals who cannot afford the full cost of a home, and they can be an excellent way to get your foot on the housing ladder.
14 – Consider Alternative Housing Alternatives
Don’t limit your housing search to traditional council housing. Other alternatives are available, such as sheltered housing for the elderly and supported housing for those with impairments
These housing types might be more suitable for your particular lifestyle and needs, so be sure to investigate them before applying for council housing.
