How does Shared Ownership work at Station Hill?
The Government-backed Shared Ownership scheme allows you to purchase one of these attractive properties at a fraction of the market price. Curious to know more? Here’s the breakdown:
Let’s say you want to purchase an apartment at Station Hill, valued at £240,000. With Shared Ownership, you don’t need to pay the full amount. You can opt to purchase a 25% share of the property – £60,000. You then need to raise a 5% deposit for your 25% share – just £3,000 – and finally secure a mortgage on the outstanding amount.
When it comes to the deposit, Shared Ownership makes it possible to purchase a Station Hill apartment in beautiful Bury St Edmunds with an initial payment of just £3,000.
Furthermore, if after you’ve moved into the property you decided you want to own your home outright, you can increase your share value to 100% – something we call ‘staircasing’.
