Information about shared ownership properties (also known as 'part buy part rent homes')
If you are looking for information about shared ownership properties, including shared ownership homes for sale or rent in your area, you can search for part buy part rent homes at Share to buy's affordable housing property portal.
There are two main types: new build shared ownership - where you part rent and part buy a brand new property; second hand shared ownership where you purchase an existing share (known as 'resales').
There are also sub-categories of these schemes such as rent to buy, shared ownership for over-55s etc (aka shared ownership retirement properties). Shared ownership properties vary not just in type but also by region. For example, shared ownership homes in London tend to be flats, whilst towns such as Milton Keynes may have more shared ownership houses for sale.
There is also growing availability of part buy part rent houses with capped staircasing on special rural schemes. Whatever the type of abode, when it comes to buying property shared ownership is one way that can be genuinely more affordable, certainly for first time buyers. Visit www.sharetobuy.com to search for the shared ownership property right for you.
Further information on shared ownership property
The Share to buy affordable housing property portal has unique affordability features, including a shared ownership property search tool showing you the minimum deposit required to purchase a property and the likely monthly payments (we are able to do this because we are shared ownership mortgage brokers with up to the minute access to the latest product information).
The issue of what deposit you need to buy shared ownership homes is important. For example, though it is possible to apply for a shared ownership new build flat with a 5% or 10% deposit, you may sometimes need a deposit closer to 20% of the share to obtain mortgages for shared ownership properties.
