What is Shared Ownership?
Shared Ownership makes it possible to buy a property that otherwise would not have been affordable on the open market. It is best suited to people who have some money saved, but not enough for a deposit to buy 100% of a home. In a nutshell, Shared Ownership allows you to buy a share of your home with a mortgage.
This can be as little as 25% or as much as 75% initially. Typically, people start with a 30% share. You only need to pay a deposit on the share you are buying, not on the total cost of the home. This means that the amount you need in savings is far less than if you were buying the same property outright.
