Shared Ownership

Shared ownership is an easy and affordable way to buy your own home by purchasing a share in a property and paying subsidised rent on the remaining share.

We help you work out what share you can afford to buy – normally between 25% and 75% – so you won’t be stretched financially. You can buy further shares when you can afford to, until you eventually own the property outright.

We have a variety of new build homes for sale. We also have re-sale properties which are currently owned by existing shared owners who have decided to move. Normally we offer the larger properties to people with children or those with dependants, but we do look at each case individually. Your income will also affect the size and share of property that you can buy.

The sale price of the property is set by an independent valuer approved by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, who will value the property at the current open market valuation. Our sales team will discuss your preferred home and location with you and advise on the best type of property available for you and your budget.

If you have no deposit but wish to buy why not consider our Intermediate Rent scheme? It offers homes at a rent normally 20 – 30% lower than you would expect to pay for a similar home in a comparable location, to help you save for a deposit in order to buy. Click here for further information.

Your new build home will come with a guarantee, full details on length of guarantee and cover will be given to you in your welcome pack when you move into your new home. All our properties are built to the latest energy efficient standards.
