How do Shared Ownership mortgages work?

The Shared Ownership scheme in England is a Government backed scheme to help you afford to buy a house. It offers you the chance to buy a share of between 25% and 75% of your home’s value and then pay rent on the remaining share. For this reason, it is often referred to as ‘part-rent, part buy’.

You might be consider a Shared Ownership scheme if you’ve struggled to raise a large enough mortgage based on your savings and income alone. It also provides long-term security, which may be better than simply renting a property.

Typically, you would raise a mortgage on your share of the purchase price of the property. And pay a deposit of 5% on this amount, rather than the full purchase price. Again, this can make it easier if you’re on lower incomes or you’ve struggling to save a deposit.
