Shared ownership is an affordable way for first time buyers to get on the property ladder.
It’s a government backed home ownership scheme where you can buy a share of your home (between 25% and 75%) and pay rent on the remaining share.
You’ll need a deposit of between 5% and 20% of the share you are buying and will need to get a mortgage for the remainder of the share you purchase.
