Shared ownership explained

Buying a Moat shared ownership home means that you own a share of your new home and pay rent to Moat on the remaining share, otherwise know as part buy part rent. For example, you may buy a 25% share in one of our new homes and pay subsidised rent to Moat on the remaining 75% (plus service charge). Staircasing gives you the option to increase your shares  until you own the property outright.

What are the benefits of shared ownership?

You own as much of your home as you can afford and you can buy a larger share if and when you’re able to, through a process called staircasing. Compared to renting, your monthly mortgage plus rent can work out less and of course you have something to show for it, as you own a part of your home. Compared to outright sale, you'll need less in savings as you'll be putting down a deposit on a share of the property.​

Is shared ownership for me?

Shared ownership is designed for people who aren't able to afford a first home. You must not currently own a property and have a total household income of £80,000 or less. We recommend you have around £4,000 in savings to cover the costs involved in buying a new home and moving into it. Shared ownership offers an affordable route onto the property ladder.​
