Rent to Home

We will be letting out our properties and returning a proportion of the rent to support with the deposit for a first home.

The Rent to Home initiative has been designed to help those who can afford to rent, but are unable to save a deposit to purchase a home.

If you’re successful you’ll be able to rent a newly refurbished property from us for a minimum of one year and a maximum of three years. During this time, if you’re ready to purchase your own home, 70% of the rent paid will be returned to help towards the deposit.

The return of 70% relies on you taking a mortgage with The Cambridge.

The properties are conveniently located for those working in or commuting from the city of Cambridge. They’ve been recently refurbished and will provide a great home while you’re making your way to the first step of home ownership.
