Shared Ownership

Shared ownership gives people an opportunity of owning a home when they would otherwise not be able to afford it.  Shared ownership allows people to buy a share in a property with a housing association and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share.

Ownership can be of different amounts.  For example;

  • Buyer 25% and housing association 75%
  • Buyer 50% and housing association 50%
  • Buyer 75% and housing association 25%

The buyer can increase the share they own during the time of ownership; this is called 'staircasing'.
