Key Information for Shared Owners
This note is intended as a brief guide for Leaseholders (i.e., shared owners) of the key provisions of the Shared Ownership Lease.
All Leaseholders should carefully consider the terms of this note and the attached lease and discuss any issues that arise with his or her solicitor before entering into the lease.
1HOW DOES SHARED OWNERSHIP WORK?
Under a shared ownership lease, the Leaseholder buys a ‘share’ of the property and pays rent on the remaining share of the property (which remains in the ownership of the Landlord).
The Leaseholder can buy further shares in the property at the market value of those shares at the time of purchase. Buying further shares is referred to as ‘staircasing’. When the Leaseholder owns 100%, he or she can acquire the freehold in the property for no charge.
As the Leaseholder buys further shares, the rent will be reduced proportionately to reflect the fact that the Landlord’s interest in the property has reduced.
2STANDARD LEASE OBLIGATIONS
Although initially the property is not owned outright, the Leaseholder does have the normal responsibilities of a full owner. This means, for example, that the Leaseholder will be obliged to pay 100% of the outgoings relating to the property and to keep the property in good and substantial repair and condition.
The lease also contains other ‘standard’ obligations on the Leaseholder. For example, the Leaseholder will:
•if applicable, need to contribute towards the costs incurred by the Landlord in providing services;
•need to seek the Landlord’s consent before making certain alterations; and
•if applicable, comply with regulations relating to the management of the estate of which the property forms part.
The rent will be reviewed periodically at the times set out in the lease. Typically, the rent will be reviewed every year. The reviewed rent will be increased in line with any proportionate increases in the retail prices index (RPI).
The rent will be reviewed on an ‘upwards only’ basis. This means that the level of rent will not go down when it is reviewed. However, any increase in the rent will be capped at a figure representing the RPI increase plus 0.5%. This means that where the RPI is zero or negative the most the rent can increase by is 0.5%.
A worked example demonstrating how the rent is recalculated at review is set out in Appendix 2 of the lease.
