Shared ownership is an option for those, mainly first time buyers, who don’t have a large enough deposit and level of income for the more usual routes into home ownership. With shared ownership you buy a share in a property and pay rent on the share you don’t own. You can usually buy more shares in the property until you own the whole property.

What is it?

  • Affordable way of buying a home
  • Part buy/part rent – you buy a share of the property and then pay rent on the part you don’t buy
  • Over time you can increase the proportion you own until you own the property outright

Who is eligible?

  • Now open to people of any occupation
  • Income considerations vary regionally between schemes, for example in London household income would need to be £90,000 or less
  • First time buyer or existing share owner

Why it could be for you...

  • Relatively small deposit as you only need a deposit for the part you buy
  • Relatively small mortgage as you only need it for the part you buy

Things to look out for…

  • There might be a service charge on the property
  • You will need a mortgage for your share of the purchase price
  • They are always leasehold properties
  • You can sell your property, but the housing provider has an eight week opportunity to find a buyer first if you don’t own the property outright
  • Not necessarily new build properties
  • You can buy from an existing shared owner but you have to buy at least the size of share that they own
