Introducing SO Flexi

Published: 20 June 2023

If you are looking for a flexible and affordable way to buy your own home, you might want to consider SO Flexi. This is a new scheme that allows you to rent a home at a lower-than-market rate, while saving up to buy it with Shared Ownership.

Shared Ownership is a part-buy part-rent scheme that lets you buy a share of a property (usually between 25% and 75%) and pay a subsidised rent on the rest. You can then increase your share over time until you own 100% of your home. SO Flexi is designed to make Shared Ownership more accessible and convenient for people who want to get on the property ladder but need some time to save up for a deposit. You can rent a brand-new home at 20% below the market rate for up to three years for a 1-month deposit while saving up to buy it with Shared Ownership. You can also choose to buy your home at any point during the rental period or move out if you change your mind.

We have two stunning developments in the works, SO Flexi Slough, a collection of stylish one and two-bedroom apartments just a short walk away from Slough station which gives commuters easy access to the Elizabeth line. The apartments are spacious, modern, and built to perfection. Boasting open-plan living areas, fitted kitchens, balconies with a great view, and communal gardens. Love traveling? Get to Heathrow Airport by car in just 26 minutes. Shop till you drop at the Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre, you will have access to the best shops and restaurants including Nando’s, TK Max, and Primark only 12 minutes’ walk away.
