What is Shared Ownership?

Shared Ownership is an affordable home ownership scheme which makes it easier for first time buyers to get on the property ladder. Buyers purchase a share of property, and pay rent on the remaining share. Shared Ownership is a great way for first time buyers to get on the property ladder, as it can dramatically reduce the amount required for a deposit. Shared Ownership has helped thousands of first time buyers onto the property ladder in England.

Share to Buy is a national Shared Ownership property portal, also listing Help to Buy, rental and other affordable home ownership properties. You can search for properties, use our helpful guides and FAQs to get all the  info you need and we can even help you find a mortgage to buy your perfect home.
