If you bought a home on the open market, you would agree a purchase price through an estate agent. Then you would take out a mortgage to cover the total purchase price of the property minus any deposit you might have available.
With Shared Ownership, the price of the property is fixed at the open market value, as assessed by a qualified valuer. You borrow just enough to cover the share you are buying. This is referred to as equity share.
The equity share amount will be an amount that you can afford, as set out under government guidelines. The total monthly cost of the rent, plus your
mortgage, will be lower than the monthly cost if you bought the property outright with a mortgage.
For legal reasons, while you are only buying a part-share of the property, you will have a leasehold interest of 990 years where the scheme allows. However, you may buy further shares. This is called ‘staircasing’, and may
eventually progress to outright ownership.
To be eligible for Shared Ownership you need to:
- be a first-time buyer, an existing shared ownership homeowner, or a former homeowner who can’t afford to get a mortgage for 100% of the property
- be over 18 years old
- have an annual household income of less than £80,000 (£90,000 in London).
If you wish to buy one of these properties we need to assess your eligibility for shared ownership. For this we need to see:
•Proof of ID
•Proof of address
•Mortgage in principle
•Proof of deposit
•Full details for each buyer
You will also be required to complete an application form and an affordability calculation.
Shared ownership is a part buy part rent property from a registered landlord
You purchase a share with the help of a mortgage based on your affordability.
