How Shared Ownership

The Shared Ownership scheme is simple; you buy an initial share of between 40% and 75% of the home's full value and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder. You may purchase further shares (up to 100%) as your circumstances change.

Am I Eligible?

If you earn or have a household income up to a maximum of £80,000 (or £90,000 in London) per annum, you could be eligible. You can also use Shared Ownership to buy alone or with another person as long as your joint incomes don't exceed the maximum earnings bracket. Some developments have eligibility or prioritisation.

Can I Buy Additional Shares?

Yes you can. This is known as 'staircasing'. When you buy more shares in your home, your home is re-valued and you buy the shares at the current market value, at the time you are buying the shares. You can staircase up to 100%. (development specific*)

What If I Already Have A Home?

If you already own a property you would need to have confirmed the sale of your home when you apply to buy via Shared Ownership. Your application would be assessed based on your housing need for you to be considered for Shared Ownership.
