What is Shared Ownership?
If you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home then Help to Buy: shared ownership offers you the opportunity to buy a share of your home and pay rent on the remaining share.You can buy between 25% and 75% of the property with the option to buy more shares at a time that’s right for you.
Every month you repay your mortgage on the share you’ve bought, together with a subsidised rent on the remaining share.
Who do you share the property with?
You share the ownership with the Housing Association but have all the rights and responsibilities of the full owner occupier. You pay the Housing Association a discounted monthly fee on the remaining share, which they continue to own.
What are the benefits of Shared Ownership?
You benefit from lower monthly payments than if you bought a home outright but get all the advantages of a brand new home. You can usually buy more shares in your home as soon as you can afford to. The more shares you buy, the lower the monthly fee you pay.
- Less deposit is required than with an outright purchase.
- You will only need to secure a mortgage of 25-75% of the purchase price.
- Monthly costs can be 50% less than buying a property outright.
- first time buyers with a household income of less than £50k should be eligible for a Part Rent Part Buy scheme.
- As your income increases, you can choose to buy a greater percentage of the property.

How can I achieve a 28 day exchange deadline when purchasing a new home?

Since you are buying from a house builder that handles hundreds of house sales every year, you will be expected to exchange contracts within their time frame.

Can I make colour choices on a new build?
If you are buying a new build property and you reserve at an early enough stage, then you may be able to make colour choices. Typically the options will include kitchen units and work tops, tiling and flooring. Obviously if the house is already or close to being built then it will be too late to customise the finished.
