Buying more shares in your home

You can buy more of your home whenever you want to. This is called 'staircasing'. The minimum share you can buy is 10%*. As you buy more shares, you'll pay less rent. And once you own your home outright you won't pay any rent at all.

* There are some leases that restrict the percentage you can purchase. Please see your lease for details.

Learn more about how to staircase in our guide. To get started with buying more shares, fill out the form in the guide.
