Shared ownerships and rentals

Getting on the property ladder is tough for any first-time buyer and with limited affordable housing it has never been harder. A shared ownership scheme enables first-time buyers to get their foot on the housing ladder through a part buy/part rent arrangement.

The arrangement is through the housing association and it helps first-time buyers to purchase a property at a level they can afford. This means you won’t push yourself to your financial limits and risk being unable to keep up with your mortgage repayments.

At any time you will be able to increase your sharehold in the property, with the potential to owning your home in its entirety. A mortgage will still be required and the property will need to be sold through the housing association if and when you choose to do so.
