Help to Buy Shared Ownership


Help to Buy Equity Loan

If you cannot quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home, Help to Buy Shared Ownership offers you the chance to buy a share of a home (between 25% and 75% of the home's value) and pay rent on the remaining share. Later on, you could buy bigger shares when you can afford to - this is called Staircasing


With a Help to Buy Equity Loan the Government lends you up to 20% of the cost of your newly built home, so you will only need a 5% cash deposit and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest.




Help to Buy Shared Ownership Resales


Discounted Sale

When any existing part buy/part rent home becomes available for resale you can buy the share from its current owner


When Councils and Housing Associations build new homes for sale, some are sold at a discount from the Open Market value and maybe subject to meeting Local Connection criteria.  This is known as a Discounted Sale.
