Shared Ownership is intended to help people who want to buy a property but can't quite afford it.
You can buy a 25%, 50% or 75% share (or tranche) of your home, usually raising a mortgage to pay for it. You pay a reduced rent, called an occupancy charge, for the share you do not own. In time you can increase your share by "staircasing" up to 100%.
If you are interested in a shared ownership property, you must register with These Homes, as most (but not all) of our shared ownership properties are advertised through Homehunt.
