Shared Ownership is a fantastic opportunity if you're an unable to purchase a home on the open market. It allows you to buy a share in a property on a part buy/part rent basis and pay a subsidised rent on the part that you do not own. Over time you can purchase more shares in your property - this is known as 'staircasing'. This can be done at any time after initial purchase and it will reduce the amount of rent you pay as the share of the home that you do not own will have got smaller.
We will offer shares for sale normally between 25-75% of the property depending on how much you can afford. The bigger the share you buy, the less rent you have to pay. You will need to be able to raise a mortgage for the share you want to purchase unless you have sufficient money to enable you to purchase without. Any deposit you pay will be smaller than if buying outright as you will not be purchasing the whole of the home. The combined cost of mortgage and rent is often cheaper than privately renting in the area.
