Shared Ownership, how does it work?
If buying a home seems out of reach, Shared Ownership* could be the answer and offers a great alternative to renting. This property has a 55% share available to purchase, and you will pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share, as displayed above. In the future you can purchase further shares in your home** or sell your share and move on.
*Properties are offered as leasehold.
**Some properties are restricted to the level of share you can purchase.
Please note: Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
All applicants will need to be approved by Help to Buy at their website.

The ‘estimated total monthly cost’ for a Shared Ownership property consists of three separate elements added together: rent, service charge and mortgage.
- Rent: This is charged on the share you do not own and is usually payable to a housing association (rent is not generally payable on shared equity schemes).
- Service Charge: Covers maintenance and repairs for communal areas within your development.
- Mortgage: Share to Buy use a database of mortgage rates to work out the rate likely to be available for the deposit amount shown, and then generate an estimated monthly plan on a 25 year capital repayment basis.
NB: This mortgage estimate is not confirmation that you can obtain a mortgage and you will need to satisfy the requirements of the relevant mortgage lender. This is not a guarantee that in practice you would be able to apply for such a rate, nor is this a recommendation that the rate used would be the best product for you.
