Shared Ownership

The process of buying your home

Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership is a great alternative to renting and perfect if you can't afford to buy a house outright. You don't have to raise a huge deposit based on the full property value. Your mortgage and deposit will cover only the % share you purchase. And you pay a low rent to us on the remaining share. Simple.

Your share will be funded by a mortgage, we will advise you on who to use as its best to use a bank that specialises in shared ownership. We will give you a lease too, entitling you to sell your property or buy more shares, in most cases. The lease also sets out information about repairs, rent and services charges - which are your responsibility.
