Jargon Busting Videos

Taking the plunge and buying your first Shared Ownership or Help to Buy home is an exciting experience and one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make. However, we understand that some of the language you’ll come across when looking to buy can seem daunting, scary and downright confusing.

In a bid to cut through the jargon and get to the heart of what such terminology actually means, we here at Share to Buy have created our own mini-series, dissecting those confusing terms and phrases that you’ll encounter on your home buying journey. However, to ensure that we keep these explanations as concise as possible, we’ve challenged ourselves to do so in 30 seconds or less.
