You can buy a home through our shared ownership scheme if you are over 18 and one of the following apply:
Shared ownership is a home ownership scheme that gives you the option of buying a share in a property – usually between 25% and 75% – and then paying rent on the remaining share.
The mortgage for your share of your home will be smaller than if you were buying the whole property. So, you don’t have to find a big deposit upfront, and it can be easier for you to get onto the property ladder.
As and when you are ready, you can buy more shares until you own 100% of your home. As the share you own increases, the rent will decrease. And, if you decide to buy your home outright, then you won’t have to pay any rent.
