More to do, see and enjoy...

The garden village of New Earswick sits a few miles north of the centre of York, the beautiful and historic capital of the North. A thriving community of all ages, since its creation by Joseph Rowntree in 1904, New Earswick has kept its emphasis on green spaces and you’ll find a Designated Educational Nature Reserve and allotments close by. New Lodge also brings improvements in the wider village, including new public spaces for play, leisure and sport.

The River Foss runs alongside the village offering a picturesque walk into the centre of York. One of the UK’s best-loved destinations, York offers a wealth of year-round activities and interest, from York Minster and Theatre Royal to racing at the Knavesmire. Take your pick of world-class museums, galleries, top class restaurants, seasonal festivals, bustling daily markets, unique heritage and culture, all just a short bus ride away.

Regular bus services connect the village to the city and shopping centres at Clifton Moor and Monks Cross, which offer spacious and varied out-to-town shopping.

Shared Ownership, Care and Rental Options

Living at New Lodge: Shared ownership, care and rental options

Shared ownership

Shared ownership allows you to buy a percentage of the full market value of a property, from 25% to a maximum of 75%. A cross between buying and renting, you pay a fixed rent on the unpurchased portion.

Enjoy all the benefits of shared ownership:

  • Buying a shared ownership property is the same as buying a property outright, in that it will be yours, and yours alone to live in and enjoy.
  • The property will be sold to you on a 125-year leasehold basis.
  • A monthly rent will be charged by JRHT in respect of the unpurchased portion of the property. However, where a 75% purchase is made, you will not be required to pay rent on the final unpurchased 25%.
  • You have the option to buy a bigger percentage of the property at a later date.
  • You will be required to pay a service charge, regardless of tenure type or percentage of property owned.
  • You will be responsible for any internal repairs to your home, but we will take care of maintaining the building, communal areas and all external landscaped grounds.

Flexible and affordable, shared ownership offers you a great way to buy your next home, with the advantages of releasing cash from the sale of your current property and even a mortgage free retirement.

In order to be eligible for a shared ownership apartment at New Lodge you will need to apply to Help to Buy NEYH( North East, Yorkshire and Humberside) as the regulator of shared ownership. Application details can be found at Help to Buy.

Available shared ownership properties at New Lodge can be found at our properties for sale page.
