HOW DOES SHARED OWNERSHIP WORK
When purchasing on a shared ownership basis there is also rent to pay (for the % you do not purchase) which at 50% is 222.00 pcm.

Shared Ownership is designed for people to purchase a property of their own who normally would not be able to get on the housing ladder. It reduces the cost of buying a property by the purchaser taking a share of the property, normally a percentage - say 50% which is shared with a housing association or other body. For Shared Ownership the purchaser then pays a rent to the housing association for the other remaining percentage.

The vendor has advised the rent for this property on a 50% share (ie for the housing associations' 50%) is approx. 222.00 as at July 2015.

CAN I BUY MORE?
In this instance you may purchase 50% or 100%. You are entitled to purchase further percentage shares.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
The housing association INSISTS on the following criteria...

a) you cannot be a home owner
b) you must live and/ or work in the local area
c) applicants must earn no more than 60,000
d) must not currently own a property
