Specialist Shared Ownership

Shared ownership is a government funded initiative to consider if you are not yet able to fund the cost of a home on your own, enabling people who cannot afford to buy a suitable property on the open market, to purchase a property on a part buy part rent basis. It is an alternative to renting and full ownership.

The purchaser usually purchases 25% - 75% of the value of the home and pays rent on the remainder. The scheme enables people to buy a home in stages with an option to buy more shares later on this is known as (“staircasing”)

Shared ownership residents hold a long term lease usually 99 years, purchased from a housing association that retains the share of the property that you do not purchase.

Shared ownership is open to:

  • people who rent council or housing association properties
  • first-time buyers (you are a first-time buyer if you haven”t owned a home before)

You can also get help through shared ownership if you used to own a home, but can't afford to buy one now.

Selling your shared ownership home

You can sell your home at any time, but you must tell the housing association in writing.

If you own a share of your home, the housing association has the right to find a buyer for it.

If you own 100 per cent of your home, you can sell it yourself. When you put your home up for sale, the housing association has the right to buy the property back first. This is known as the ‘right of first refusal’. The housing association has this right for 21 years after you fully own the home.

Very good value for money. As a mortgage broker I have clients that pay double that of Hanover and the service is not half as good . I will have no hesitation of recommending the services of Hanover (London E5).

As a first time buyer it was imperative that I dealt with knowledgeable solicitors who understood the shared ownership market, I was certainly not disappointed.
