Shared ownership is a great way to get onto the property ladder. Simply put, you buy a share in a property and rent the rest. As a guide, you can normally buy between 25% and 75% of the property.
When you can afford it, you’ll be able to buy more of the property – this is called ‘staircasing’ – and increase your investment.
You can buy a newly built house or one which is being sold by a housing association. You’ll need to take out a mortgage from a lender who specialises in this type of loan to pay for your share of the property’s purchase price. This is exactly what we do so if you have a property in mind, why not speak to one of our advisors on 01664 414141?
Depending on your circumstances, we can offer you fixed rate and discounted rate shared ownership mortgages. In time, you may be able to buy a greater share to get you to full ownership. Sound good? To find out more, request a call back from our friendly team.
This depends on where you live in the UK. For England, you’ll usually need to be a first-time buyer with a combined household income below £80,000 outside London. Military personnel may also have priority.
If you would prefer to discuss your options with our advisors, call us on 01664 414141 or request a call back. We’re here to help you find the best solution. Take a look at our Handy Guide to Buying Your First Home too.
