Buy a Home

Buy a Home with Shared Ownership

Shared ownership is a scheme where tenants can buy a proportion (usually 30%) of a new home with a mortgage, and pay rent on the rest. It is also known as part rent/part buy. Over time, you can buy more of the property until you own 100%, which is known as ‘Staircasing’.

Shared Ownership is usually available to the following people:

  • First Time Buyers (if they would be unable to afford to buy a home normally)
  • People who work in health, education and fire services, the police and local council
  • People experiencing a major change in circumstances (e.g. a forced sale because of divorce/separation, overcrowding at an existing home due to a new family addition, having to care for a sick relative)
  • Housing Association and Council tenants

You must be able to do the following:

  • Register and apply through BPHA on keyhomes-east (you may also have to register your interest in Shared Ownership with your local council – you should register with all the necessary organisations as soon as you know you want to buy a home)
  • Get a mortgage
  • Show you have enough money to cover the cost of buying a home (at least £4,000)
  • Show you have enough money to pay a 5-10% deposit on the property you’re buying

The scheme is not usually available to the following people:

  • Those who could afford to buy a house normally or have previously owned their own home
  • People who still owe their landlord or lender rent or mortgage payments
  • People who can’t get a mortgage

FirstStepsLondon is an independent scheme set up by the Government to help first-time buyers, click here to find out more.
