Homeownership is particularly significant for Tania, as 10 years ago she was homeless and living on the streets of York.
After spending time in a Government homeless project, and then a council property, Tania bought a 2-bedroom home on Rainsborough Park. There she met her partner Josh who had also recently bought on the development in a 3 semi-bedroom home. A friendship started to blossom and a soon after they were in a relationship.
Fast forward to 2021, and the couple have bought their second Gleeson home, together on the same development. Choosing to buy a 3 bedroom detached home and are now engaged.
