How it works
Register for shared ownership with a Housing Association.
Passed the checks? You’ll be shortlisted for a property.
You take out a mortgage for between 25% and 75% of the property value.
You pay the Housing Association subsidised rent on their share.
You can increase your share of the property over time by buying it from the Housing Association, this is called ‘Staircasing’. Or, if you decide to move on, you’ll get back any equity on the share you own.
Don’t risk losing your home – keep up those mortgage repayments
Help someone back on their feet
For every Shared Ownership mortgage completion we will donate £100 to Crisis to help someone get back on their feet.
