Shared ownership homes coming to Oldham

Date published: 15 February 2019

There’s now more affordable home-buying options after the arrival of shared ownership in Oldham following the launch of 10 three-bedroom homes for sale.

Shared ownership is a popular Government-backed scheme offering the opportunity to part-buy, and part-rent with a low deposit.

These homes are available from £55,300 (for a 35% share) with a rent of £235 per month. Larger shares of up to 75% can also be purchased.

The homes at Pavilion Green, just a stone’s throw from the park and cricket club in Royton, are the first in a series of new developments from Fabric Living Ltd, part of housing association First Choice Homes Oldham, which specialises in quality suburban homes available for shared ownership. As First Choice Homes Oldham is a not-for-profit organisation, any profit made on the new homes will be invested back into social housing in Oldham.

People interested in purchasing a home are now being invited to make an appointment to attend the sales launch at the Mercure Manchester Norton Grange Hotel and Spa, OL11 2XZ on Friday 15 and Saturday 16February, 10am-6pm. Appointments can be made by calling 0161 393 5239 or by emailing

All of the homes feature light, spacious rooms, modern fitted kitchens, contemporary bathrooms and off-road parking. They are conveniently located within easy reach of green spaces, Royton town centre and transport routes to Manchester.

The homes are expected to be ready by the end of March 2019 and are being developed in partnership with Oldham Council and Homes England as part of First Choice Homes Oldham’s commitment to improving lives and meeting housing demand in the borough.

Inside the proposed homes

Dave Woods, Homes and Investment Director at First Choice Homes Oldham, said: “Demand for homes in Oldham is on the rise, so we are delighted to be providing these new homes in such a prime spot in Royton.

“Owning a home is still out of reach for many people so we have ensured all our new Fabric Living homes at Pavilion Green offer families, couples or singles an affordable way onto the property ladder.

“At First Choice Homes Oldham we are committed to building 1,000 new homes for people at all stages of life across the borough to keep improving our communities for local people both now and long into the future.

“We look forward to seeing the first residents move into Pavilion Green in April and launching a further two Fabric Living developments in Bardsley and Sholver.”
