Northampton nurse benefits from affordable rent to buy

Sep 3, 2019
Until May 2019, Northampton nurse, Nicole Richards had been living in privately rented houses for over five years, finding it impossible to save anything towards the deposit she needed to be able to buy her own home.


When her landlord in Wellingborough decided to raise her rent, she knew that she would have to downsize, and immediately started looking for a new home to rent. She had little idea that just a week later she would be moving in to her brand new home, paying affordable rent and on a trajectory to owning her home.

Like so many of those applying for a Rentplus affordable rent to buy home, 27- year – old Nicole works in the public sector as a qualified nurse, helping young people with mental ill health in a local Northampton CAMHS unit.
