Part buy, part rent 

Shared ownership is one of the most affordable home ownership options. Buyers can purchase a share of a property between 25% and 75%, whilst paying a subsidised rent to a housing association on the remaining shares.
Ultimately, shared ownership gives first-time buyers who are unable to buy a home outright, the opportunity to get onto the property ladder.

Is shared ownership for me?

If you are unable to afford the full depost or monthly repayments then yes this scheme is for you. There are a few stipulations though, namely, you cannot currently own a property, you need to have a household income of more than £80k per annum. You should also be prepared for the costs involved with buying a home and for this we recommend you have around £4000. This is currently the best route that enable people to enter onto the property ladder.


Staircasing allows you to buy further shares of your property, after purchasing your initial share. You can buy as little as 10% share per staircasing transaction, but many people purchase larger shares. Once you reach 100% shares, limited to three transactions in total, you will own your shared ownership home outright. At this point you no longer pay rent. You will be able to purchase the share at the current market value.
