Creating great homes together

Shared Ownership

What is Shared Ownership?

Shared ownership is another way to buy your own home if you cannot afford to buy on the open market. You buy a percentage and pay rent on the rest. The housing association owns part of it — but you’re living there, you decorate it, and you decide when to sell.

Buying a percentage means a smaller deposit and smaller mortgage. In most cases, you can carry on buying shares, to own it 100%.
