Shared Ownership Explanation 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 deposit and mortgage than if you bought a property outright. Generally you are able to buy a bigger property than you may otherwise be able to afford
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 Your monthly payments could be less than renting privately.
A service charge of £25pcm (to be confirmed) is payable for maintenance of any common areas and to cover buildings insurance.
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.
