Part buy, part rent
Get your foot on the property ladder without needing any house deposit saved up through Keyzy's Rent to Own scheme.
An alternative to traditional renting, Keyzy's Rent to Own scheme is a way to build up equity in a home without needing any deposit. So you can start building up property wealth without having any cash saved up.
Keyzy will buy the home on your behalf, which you will then rent from them at a fixed amount for a set number of years. Your monthly payments are made up of your rent - which is charged at market rates (around 6%) - plus an extra 1.5% which is put towards paying off the property.
When you buy the home off Keyzy later on, the buy-back price will be based on what Keyzy paid for it (plus any costs they incurred buying it) minus all the money you've put towards the property each month.
Plus, you can decide to buy more of the property at any time at the original property price, reducing the buy-back price even more. Or, if you're not ready to buy your home at the end of your lease, you can extend it to continue renting.

Not every mortgage is for everyone. Here’s some things you should know before applying.
Get on the ladder with 0% deposit
Saving up for a house deposit is often the biggest hurdle to homeownership. With Keyzy's scheme, you can live in a place of your own sooner, without having any deposit saved up.
Build up equity while renting
Up to 25% of your rent payments each month will go towards reducing the eventual price you pay to buy the home off Keyzy. If you want to buy more of the property at any point, you can at the original property price (plus costs). When you decide to leave you can either find another buyer, or walk away with the equity you've accumulated - plus any increases in property value.
Your monthly payments are fixed
Your monthly payments are fixed for the duration of the lease, which will be between 3 to 7 years. The longer your lease, the more you reduce the price you pay for the home at the end. You can leave your lease at anytime if you find another buyer, but you will need to pay a 1% early exit fee.
You must earn at least £30,000
To qualify for Keyzy's scheme, you must have a minimum household income of £30,000 (before tax).
The property must meet Keyzy's requirements
The property must be a house which can be occupied straight away - it cannot be a flat, buy to let property or a home that requires refurbishment or renovation. If the EPC rating of the property is less than C, within your first 12 months you will be required to upgrade the home at your own cost.
You'll be tied in for the length of the lease
You'll agree to an initial lease for the property, which will be between 3 to 7 years. If you want to leave before the lease has ended, you'll need to find another buyer and pay a 1% early exit fee.
You aren't the owner of the property
As Keyzy purchases the property on your behalf, until you buy the property off them you are not the owner of the property.
