How Shared Ownership works
Whether you are a first time buyer, or are looking for a larger home, Shared Ownership is really simple.
You start by buying a share of the property (usually between 25% and 75%) and pay a subsidised rent on the rest. This helps to reduce the amount of deposit you need (so you can save for it faster) and makes the monthly mortgage repayments more manageable.
And the great thing about Shared Ownership is that, at any time in the future, you can buy additional shares in your home until you own all of it – we call this ‘Staircasing’. As you purchase more shares the rent reduces, and when you own 100% of the property you will not need to pay rent at all.
For over 30 years, we’ve been helping purchasers, with over 4,000 successful moves. Our current developments are in Berkshire, Kent, London, Surrey and Sussex; come and discover which of our developments is best suited to you.
We look forward to seeing you there!
