A National Offering Of Shared Ownership
Why Buy Shared Ownership?
Shared Ownership is the perfect way to get on to the housing ladder if your finances mean that your housing needs and your current situation don’t quite match.
It also means you’ll have more choice when it comes to the size of your new home, and the area you buy in. Being able to buy a smaller share of a more expensive home means more people can afford to buy in the
area they want to live, and can find a home that perfectly suits the needs of their family circumstances, without requiring a large deposit or a large salary.
Does Shared Ownership mean I will be sharing the house with someone else?
Shared Ownership is the same as buying a home on the open market. You buy a share, but the house is yours.
No one comes to check up on you, you are treated as a homeowner. The only difference is the housing provider
you buy the home from owns the share you haven’t bought.
Can I buy 100% of the home at any point?
Yes you can, as long as your lease allows it. Initially you buy a share of between 25% - 75%, then at any point
after you’ve moved in you can buy more shares. This is called “staircasing” and is explained in more detail on
the opposite page.
Can I change the home or do I need permission?
Absolutely, you can decorate it how you like, remember it is your home after all. Just remember that if you ever
want to sell, it needs to be in a sellable condition. So maybe think twice before painting the ceilings bright green
with pink spots!
