Buying a part share in a property
Putting a shared ownership property on the market?
First time buyers finding it hard to get onto the property ladder can seek assistance form shared ownership schemes. Under these schemes, the buyer pays a reduced percentage of the purchase price and the rest is funded by a housing association. The buyer then pays rental fees for the proportion of the property they do not own with the option of buying it at a later date.
We can also advise you regarding the latest government schemes to encourage home ownership, including:
- Help to Buy
- Shared ownership
- New buy
- Help to buy mortgage guarantees
Shared ownership schemes can have complicated leases so it is important that you are fully aware of the terms of the scheme structure before you sign up. When it comes to selling your shared ownership property you have to adhere to the set procedure, notifying your housing association and giving them first refusal to buy the property.
