Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership is a housing scheme designed to help homebuyers who are unable to afford the cost of buying a property outright on the open market. Properties may be sold off-plan or new build direct from housing associations, or pre-owned from existing shared owners. The rules and terms of the scheme are set by the Greater London Authority (GLA) in London and Homes England outside of London.

The GLA and Homes England set the eligibility criteria for Shared Ownership, but broadly speaking you must:
 Not own another property in the UK or any other country.
 Have a household income that falls below £90,000 (£80,000 threshold outside the M25). Every property will have a minimum income level too, determined by its’ value, rent and service charge costs. In most cases you will need to meet or exceed the given minimum income.
 Have access to a minimum deposit of 10% of the share being purchased (a minimum deposit of 5% of the share being purchased may be acceptable depending on individual financial status).
 Be in full time permanent employment.
 Be a British, EU or EEA Citizen or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
 Have a good credit history.
