Shared ownership mortgages were introduced to help people get on to the property ladder with access to affordable housing. You buy a share of the property initially (e.g. 50%) and pay rent on the remainder until you are in a position to increase your percentage shareholding.Get Started
The deposit you need to find for this type of purchase is usually smaller than a standard purchase which makes shared ownership attractive to first time buyers.Apply Now
How does a mortgage work with shared ownership?
With shared ownership you are essentially buying part of the house and renting the rest of it. Your share of the home will usually be somewhere between 25-75%, of which you will pay a mortgage on. The remainder of the cost will usually be at a lower rent than the market value, paid to a housing association. This will normally include any service charges and ground rent.
Is it hard to get a mortgage for shared ownership with bad credit?
Whilst you may find that there are specific mortgages available to customers with bad credit, the majority are not available to those looking to buy via shared ownership. If your credit rating is not of a good enough standard, the local housing association may also decline your application.
Do I need a mortgage for shared ownership?
You can pay cash for your share but most applicants need to take out a mortgage. You are able to utilise this scheme on both newly built homes and existing homes that may have been a part of a resale programme with a housing association. A shared ownership property will always be leasehold.
What is the minimum income for shared ownership?
In order to qualify for a shared ownership mortgage, you must be over 18 and be generating an annual household income of less than £80,000. This changes slightly if you are living within the London area, as that number increases to £90,000, allowing those who earn a little more to use this scheme also.
How much deposit do I need to buy a shared ownership property?
Unlike other property types, for a shared ownership property you do not usually need a deposit of the full purchase price, instead only typically 10% deposit of the share that you are buying.
