A guide to Shared Ownership
01 August 2019
We are celebrating another year of Shared Ownership as part of Shared Ownership Week.
WhatHouse? has produced this guide in association with Share to Buy, to help you through the process of understanding the government’s Shared Ownership scheme and whether you are able to use it to purchase a brand new home.
Shared Ownership has been around in one form or another for over 30 years. The government last overhauled the criteria in Spring 2016.
Fundamentally it has been kept as simple as possible to demonstrate to people on a modest budget that purchasing a part of their own home is a great way to get a foot on the property ladder.
This guide takes you through the initial criteria, the search and purchase process and your options once you have bought your Shared Ownership property.
