Shared Ownership - How It Works And How You Start The Application Process.

Shared Ownership allows you to buy a share in a new home, ranging from 40% to 75%, depending on what you can afford. Progress Housing will own the remaining share, and you pay a reduced rent on that share.

This means that you will need a smaller mortgage to buy the property, and will also need a smaller deposit. You can buy more shares as and when you can afford them - this is called Staircasing - and as you buy more shares, you will pay less rent. You can eventually own 100% of the property if you want to, at which point you will pay no rent at all*

A service charge of £42.52pcm is payable for maintenance of any common areas and to cover buildings insurance. (this is to be confirmed) This also covers a sinking fund for the cost of future major repairs.

As a home owner, you will be responsible for the maintenance and repairs on your home. However as it is a new build your property comes with a 10 year NHBC guarantee and many of the appliances will have a 2 year manufacturers guarantee giving you peace of mind.

You can apply to buy one of these homes by filling in an online application form on the Help to Buy North West website where the properties are listed. www.helptobuynw.org.uk.  Progress Housing will undertake an affordability assessment with you and can provide details of Independent Financial Advisors who can assist with obtaining a mortgage.

Detailed below is an indication of the price of various shares and the rent payable on the unpurchased equity.
