Buying a property
At Hanover we’ve been building high-quality homes for people aged over 55 for more than 50 years.
When you purchase a Hanover Downsizer Home, you’re buying a private, self-contained property, supported by a professional management service from a specialist, not-for-profit organisation with excellent customer service. You can buy outright or via shared ownership where available.
We appoint independent, local estate agents to act on our behalf so that you deal with people who have the local knowledge to help and advise.
For details of the estate agents selling each scheme, please see the individual development pages.
There are no restrictions on who can purchase an outright sale property. While occupiers have to be over 55, purchasers can be younger than this, so for example a son or daughter can buy a Downsizer Home for a parent to live in.
If you’re interested in shared ownership homes, you may need to meet certain requirements (for example, having a local connection with the area).
