Shared Ownership is a type of affordable homeownership when a purchaser takes out a mortgage on a share of a property and pays rent to a landlord on the remaining share.
Please note: Eligibility criteria may vary per housing association and therefore you should always check the exact criteria with the developer or housing association responsible for the exploitation of the project.
