Shared Ownership Housing

This is a fantastic opportunity for those who want to get a foot on the property ladder, but cannot afford to buy their own home on the open market. It allows you to buy a share in a brand new housing association property and pay a reduced rent on the remaining share owned by the housing association.

As part owner of the property you can ask to buy additional shares in the property as and when you can afford it until you own the property outright. This is known as 'stair-casing'. In some rural areas the opportunity to own the property outright may be restricted.
