Take a moment to see what some of our customers have to say about their experience with Share to Buy!



“I’d almost given up hope of ever owning in central London. A friend then told me about Shared Ownership, and a quick online search into the scheme led me to the Share to Buy website. I cannot recommend it enough, as without their help I still don’t think I would be a homeowner!”

“With home ownership, it’s easy to become disheartened but once you seek advice and look at all the options, it’s not as daunting or as stressful as it can be portrayed. I bought with just a £6,000 deposit and now my monthly payments including bills is just £1,060!”

“My advice for first time buyers would be to sign up to the Share to Buy website to find the kind of property that you’d be looking to buy. There’s definitely no way that I would have been able to buy a property without the Shared Ownership scheme.”

“There’s a staircasing calculator on the Share to Buy website that you can use to check whether or not you can buy any other shares. I checked and got an answer back that I could staircase to 100% so I decided to do that!!”

“I know that I made sacrifices to buy my flat, so it makes it all worth it when I return home from a business trip or holiday, and feel a sense of pride and love for where I live. I would not have been able to get onto the housing ladder if it wasn’t for Shared Ownership”
