The major providers of Shared Ownership, Help to Buy and other affordable ways to buy a home in Bloxham and nationwide have their homes listed on Share to Buy.
Shared Ownership is an affordable home ownership scheme which makes it easier for eligible purchasers to get on the property ladder. Buyers get a mortgage for the share they can afford, and pay rent on the remaining share.
No – this is a common misconception but the ‘shared’ aspect of the scheme simply means you’re sharing ownership of your home with a housing association.
If you decide to buy a Shared Ownership home in Bloxham, you’re effectively purchasing a portion of your property. Your initial share will usually be between 25% to 75%, paying a mortgage on the part that you own and a below market value rent on the remaining share.
Yes – Shared Owners can choose to buy additional shares in their property by ‘staircasing’.
When buying a Shared Ownership home, you will initially purchase a minimum percentage somewhere between 25% to 75%. Down the line, if you find that your financial circumstances have changed, buyers will have the option to buy more shares.
If you choose to buy a higher percentage, your mortgage repayments will increase while the rent you pay will decrease. In the majority of cases there aren’t any restrictions and you can buy 100% of your home – in this instance, you would become the outright owner.
As a home-buying product aimed at helping those who can’t afford to purchase a property on the open market, there are certain requirements that buyers will need to meet to be considered eligible for Shared Ownership.
For example, there are caps on household income which means that you must earn less than £80,000 to be eligible for the scheme – or less than £90,000 if you would like to buy a home in London. The criteria also states that buyers must be at least 18 years of age and do not own another property either in the UK or abroad.
Shared Ownership properties enable you to put down a smaller deposit compared to those required on the open market – buyers will usually need to put down 5% to 10% of the share that they’re buying, rather than the full market value of the home.
On a monthly basis, buyers will be required to pay their mortgage, a subsidised rent and service charge on their home, however, these repayments often work out cheaper than or equal to renting privately in the same area. Other costs to consider when buying a home include solicitor and mortgage broker fees – you can find out more about these costs on Share to Buy.

Found in northern Oxfordshire just as the Cotswolds ends, Bloxham feels like it’s neatly tucked away in a sleepy corner of the country, going about its business as it has since Roman times. In a way, that’s part of this picturesque village’s charm. It might not have London levels of international recognition, but this makes it feel a little extra special, like a stunning little secret only a few thousand residents really get to enjoy and appreciate.
Always remember though that, while Bloxham may be small, the impact it has on those who live and visit there remains large. How could it not when you consider the many captivating sites and experiences that it has to offer? Its architecture is forged through Roman, Saxon, Medieval and modern history to create a smorgasbord of visual delights which are full of character, intrigue and personality.
There’s too many to mention here but just take, for instance, the Church of England parish church known as St Mary’s – with its commanding 14th-century spire looming majestically over the village. Or the superbly stately World Heritage Site Broughton Castle, a mere look at which lets you feel like you are being transported into a different time and place.
However, as incredible as these places all are, it’s important not to forget all the things which bring the community together on a daily basis. These include the exceptional schools, which educate the local children, along with the wide array of shops on the high street, from the newsagents to the local fish and chip takeaway and more.
These are all the little elements which come together to make somewhere more than just a tourist destination and transform it into a home. Of course, we can’t talk about Bloxham without mentioning its fantastic heritage of public houses, which still goes strong today.
Nearby, there’s also the magnificent Cotswolds, which has been an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty since the sixties, as well as Oxfordshire: a place brimming with opportunities and experiences. This means that Bloxham doesn’t just have its own charms but also opens you up to whole other parts of the country, each with their own distinctive offerings.
