Residential Conveyancing: Shared Ownership
Buying a property through Shared Ownership
Set up to assist buyers to get on to the property ladder, The Shared Ownership Scheme or sometimes known as ‘shared equity’ allows buyers to get a Shared Ownership home through a housing association, usually with the aid of a mortgage, by buying share of the property (between 25% and 75%) and paying rent on the rest.
If you are buying a property via this affordable housing scheme, it will normally be possible for you to purchase an additional share in the property at a later stage, known as ‘staircasing’ (buying further shares in the property) which will increase your equity in the property and reduce the rent you are paying to your Housing Association. However, various factors will determine whether or not this applies to you.
