For first time buyers who are looking to take that first step onto the property ladder, Shared Ownership could be the answer!

Also known as part-buy part-rent, Shared Ownership gives budding buyers the opportunity to purchase a share of a home; the purchaser pays a mortgage on the share they own and rent to a housing association on the remainder. As the purchaser only needs a mortgage for the share they are buying, the amount of money required for a deposit is usually a lot lower when compared to those on the open market.

The owner will then have the option to increase their share during their time in the property via a process known as ‘staircasing’, and in most cases can buy all the way up to 100%. In this instance, the shared owner will no longer pay any rent, just their mortgage along with any service charges and ground rent.
