The Shared Ownership scheme enables people who may not be able to afford a mortgage big enough to buy an entire property, or have a suitable sized deposit, to purchase a share in one. The share is generally one quarter, one half, or three-quarters, and the balance is owned by a government-backed housing association. The homeowner then pays rent to the housing association for the share they have not purchased.
If you start out with a 25% share and your circumstances change, meaning you can afford a bigger mortgage, then you can increase your stake at a later date to 50% or 75% or with some schemes up to 100% for full ownership. The rent paid will decrease in line with the reduced amount of the property owned by the housing association.
