Affordable housing is described in the UK government’s “Definitions of general housing terms” as:
Housing for sale or rent, for those whose needs are not met by the market (including housing that provides a subsidised route to home ownership and/or is for essential local workers)
All these schemes are backed by the government.
Homes available through Affordable Rent are let by their relevant local authority or private registered providers to those that are eligible. Affordable rent is no more than 80% of the local market rent, including service charges.
Intermediate Rent is designed to help first time buyers who cannot yet afford to buy a home and want a chance to save for a deposit to purchase within the next five years. The rent charged is about 80% of market rent and is available with the relevant local Help to Buy Agent.
London Living Rent is an intermediate affordable housing product available in London by the Greater London Authority.

You have the right to purchase the property within the first 10 years under Shared Ownership. This scheme is available to those with a maximum gross income of £60,000.
