Shared Ownership Milton Keynes

Take a closer look at Shared Ownership near Milton Keynes with Places for People.

The benefits of Shared Ownership near Milton Keynes

  • When buying a share in a property in the Milton Keynes area with a Shared Ownership scheme, the deposit and mortgage borrowing or cash needed is considerably lower than a standard purchase of a similar home.
  • Shared Ownership offers flexibility, because you’re able to buy more shares in the home as time goes on; in some cases up to 100% ownership.
  • You pay a subsidised rent on the part of the property that you don’t own. When combined with your mortgage repayments, this is often a lower monthly cost than renting privately or repaying a mortgage on a similar home in the Milton Keynes area.
  • If your home increases in value over time, so does the value of your share in the property.

FAQs about Shared Ownership in Milton Keynes

How does Shared Ownership work in Milton Keynes?

In addition to repaying a mortgage on the part of the Shared Ownership property that you own, you will also need to pay subsidised rent of between 2.5% and 2.75% on the other share.

For example:

  • If your Shared Ownership property is valued at £200,000
  • You own a 40% share (£80,000)
  • Your annual rent will be £3,300, or £275 per month.
  • This is 2.75% of the 60% share that you do not yet own.

Another example is if you own a 75% share in the same property, the rent will be £1,375 per year, or £114.58 per month.

If you staircase the share of your Shared Ownership home all the way up to 100% , you will no longer pay rent, as you will own all of the property.

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

You are able to buy a larger share of your home later, which is known as Shared Ownership staircasing. The larger the portion of the Milton Keynes home that you own, the smaller the amount of rent that you will have to pay.

It’s important to note that there can be legal costs associated with staircasing. 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.
