Is this location good for commuting to London?

The journey takes just over an hour on the train, and there are also regular bus and coach services. In addition, properties here are relatively affordable place to live, which makes it a great choice for commuters.

Is it possible to fully own a Shared Ownership property?

You only need to purchase a percentage of the property, as opposed to the entire amount upfront. This percentage can range from 25% to 75%, with the option to buy additional shares in the property down the line.

This is known as staircasing (see below). If you choose to staircase, your mortgage repayments will increase while the rent you pay will decrease effectively you are buying the remaining share. In most cases, there are no restrictions and you can buy 100% of your home, becoming the outright owner. For most, this is a fantastic investment both personally and financially and much more rewarding than renting privately.

Do I qualify?

In order to be eligible, buyers must meet certain requirements set out by the scheme. For example, buyers must earn less than £80,000 per year to be considered for the scheme – or less than £90,000 if you would like to buy a home in London. The criteria also states that buyers must be at least 18 years of age and do not already own another property either in the UK or abroad.
