Shared ownership mortgages are increasingly popular for first-time buyers looking to get on the property ladder. Shared ownership is a way of part-owning, part-renting a property. With shared ownership you can buy a newly built home or an existing one through sale or resale programmes offered by housing associations. You’ll need to take out a mortgage from a lender, such as the Melton, who specialises in this type of lending to pay for your share of the home’s purchase price, or fund this through your savings. Typically, you will only purchase 50% of the property from the housing association, paying a rent to the housing association for the residual element. This can make buying your home more affordable and most housing associations will allow you to “staircase” (i.e. buy a greater share) into eventual full ownership.
