About shared ownership

Shared ownership is a great way to get onto the housing ladder if you can't afford the full purchase price of your home straight away.

With shared ownership you purchase an initial share of your home, between 25% and 75% of the property’s value and then pay a rent on the remaining share. It’s a simple and cost effective way of owning your own home.

Even better, because you are buying a share of the property the deposit you need to have saved is smaller too.

If you wish to in the future you can decide to buy further shares in your home in stages or all at once, this is called staircasing.

You can apply to buy with shared ownership if:

  • You are a first time buyer
  • You are an existing shared owner moving to another shared ownership home
  • You have previously owned a home but needs help buying a new one
  • You have a combined household income less than £80,000
  • You are able to afford the mortgage, rent and service charges

This will vary depending on your circumstances. An Independent Financial Advisor will carry out a financial assessment and affordability calculator to determine the exact share you can afford to buy. They will also carry out a basic affordability check with the most appropriate lender, to ensure you are able to secure a mortgage to assist with your purchase.

Absolutely. You can choose to increase the amount you own gradually, until you own 100%. The cost of the additional shares will depend on the current market value of your home at the time you wish to buy more. By doing this you reduce the rent you are paying as you buy more of the home.

You will have a shared ownership lease which tells you your rights and responsibilities which include being responsible for the maintenance and repairs on your home as well as paying your rent, service charges and your mortgage payments.
