Shared Ownership Solicitors

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.

Tayntons’ conveyancing solicitors in Gloucester can guide you through the whole process of buying or selling a shared ownership property, as well as related issues, such as increasing your ownership share (known as ‘staircasing’). We will make the process as simple and cost-effective as possible, keeping things on schedule and ensuring there are no nasty surprises waiting for you once the deal is done.

While shared ownership property schemes can offer a fantastic opportunity for those looking to get onto the housing ladder, they do often come with complicated terms and conditions. It is therefore essential to have experienced legal advice when entering into a shared ownership agreement to ensure you interests are protected at all times.

We are highly experienced in dealing with shared ownership properties and the housing associations that own them. This means we can foresee potential issues and ensure you are completely clear about the conditions involved in buying a shared ownership property, such as any requirement to sell the property back to the housing association when you choose to move on.

Speak to one of our shared ownership solicitors now by calling 0800 158 4147 or request a call back and a member of our team will be in touch promptly.
