What is shared ownership?

Shared ownership (also known as part buy, part rent) is a Government-funded initiative aimed at first-time buyers. It is a great way for you to have the chance to own a home in an affordable way.

You start by buying a percentage share of your chosen home (starting at 25%) and then pay a discounted rate of rent on the share that you don’t own. Over time you can buy more shares, which will reduce your rent, and you can keep buying shares until you own 100% of your home.

You only need to raise a mortgage for the share that you’re buying and the minimum deposit required starts at just 5% of the share.
