FAQs about Shared Ownership in Milton Keynes

How does Shared Ownership work in Hull?

Essentially, Shared Ownership involves buying a portion of a property, typically ranging from 25% to 75% depending on the specific scheme, through cash or mortgage with a deposit, while paying subsidised rent to a housing association for the remaining share that you don't own.

In other words, Shared Ownership is a budget-friendly option for home seekers and first-time buyers to get onto the property ladder without having to pay a large deposit or taking on a potentially daunting mortgage commitment.

Can I buy more shares in my Hull Shared Ownership home later?

Allowing buyers to eventually increase their share of their home is one of the biggest advantages of Shared Ownership, providing them with the flexibility to adjust their investment according to their current financial situation.

Buying a larger share of your home is known as Shared Ownership “staircasing”, as from owning a smaller part of the property, you can gradually increase your share - in some cases up to the full 100%.

However, it’s important to remember the cost of the additional share that you want to purchase in your property will depend on the market value of your home at that time, and there can be legal costs associated with staircasing.
