If you’re thinking of moving, but struggling to put together the deposit you need shared ownership is a great way to get onto the property ladder without having to worry about finding a big deposit up front.
The way it works is that you buy a share of a property, between 25% and 75%, and then pay rent on the part you don’t own.
You can buy a home through shared ownership if your household earns £80,000 a year or less and any of the following apply:
- you’re a first-time buyer
- you used to own a home, but can’t afford to buy one now
- you’re an existing shared owner
We’ve sold hundreds of shared ownership properties in the past few years, and it has quickly become one of our specialist areas.
If you’ve got any questions about how shared ownership works why not give us a call on 0114 241 3430.
