Shared ownership mortgages

Getting on the property ladder traditionally requires a significant deposit - typically anything from 5% and upwards of the purchase price - which can be very difficult for some people to save for. This scheme allows first time buyers to purchase just part of the property initially, paying rent to a housing association for the remaining share that is not owned initially.

Applicants do not necessarily need to be first time buyers, and can have previously owned a home or rented, either privately or through a council or housing association.

Often cheaper than private rental accommodation, shared ownership mortgages help to make purchasing a home more affordable because you take out a mortgage only for the share you own - typically between 25% and 75%. That means your mortgage deposit is only calculated on your share of the overall purchase price, and not the full purchase price, which is a more manageable amount to save.

Of course, you will still need to budget for the monthly mortgage repayments and also the rental payment to the housing association.

Staircasing and shared ownership

You may find with a shared ownership mortgage that your outgoings are reduced, which means that you could be able to put money aside each month and start saving. Subject to the conditions of your property and the purchase agreement, you may be able to purchase further shares and eventually own the home outright. Known as “staircasing”, the cost of your home’s shares will depend on the value of your home at the time. When you own the property outright, you’re able to sell it on the open market. If you wish to sell before you own 100% of the home, the housing association can find its own buyer.
