The Shared Ownership scheme is a Part Buy, Part Rent way of owning your own home for a smaller up front payment. With Shared Ownership, you buy a share of your home using a mortgage from a bank or building society and pay a subsidised rent on the share you did not purchase. The combined mortgage and rent is usually less than you’d expect to pay if you bought a similar property outright.
At Bower Place, you can buy a minimum 25% share of your home (the maximum you can buy initially is 75%). You will need a minimum 5% deposit (of the share value) for mortgage purposes, plus monies to pay for solicitor fees, moving costs & furnishings.
