Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership provides a way of buying a percentage of your home (if you cannot afford the full amount) and then paying rent on the remainder until such a time that you can buy a larger percentage of your home.

Key points for Shared Ownership

  • Percentage of Shared Ownership must be from 25% to 75% of the properties value;
  • The household must be earning less than £80,000 outside London or £90,000 in London;
  • To qualify you must be a first time buyer, not able to buy a property or are already in the Shared Ownership scheme;
  • New or existing properties can be bought through Housing Associations;
  • A mortgage or savings will be required to pay your percentage of the Shared Ownership; and
  • All shared ownership properties are leasehold.
