Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

SHARED OWNERSHIP Shared Ownership allows you to buy a share in a new home, depending on eligibility and what you can afford. A housing association owns the remaining share, and you will pay a reduced rent on this share.

This means that you need to get a smaller mortgage to buy the property, and will also need a smaller deposit. You can buy more shares as and when you can afford them - this is called 'stair-casing'. As you buy more shares, you will pay less rent. You can eventually own 100% of the property if you want to, at which point you will pay no rent at all.

Shared ownership does not mean that you buy with someone you don't know. It also does not mean that you have to share the property with other people. You can buy on your own and live in the property on your own. 

SERVICE CHARGE: We are advised there is a service charge of £83.88 per month (as of May 2016) as a contribution towards general maintenance, building insurance premium, cleaning and lighting of the communal areas, communal window cleaning and gardening. 

RENT: We are advised the rent for the remaining 50% share is currently £288.27 per month (as of May 2016).
