Helping you buy



Shared Ownership could help you own your home even if you feel priced out of the property market. It is an affordable home ownership scheme designed as a stepping-stone to achieving your ultimate goal of owning your own home. You can part-own and part-rent your home, helping you to make your first steps onto the property ladder. You may find the combined cost of your mortgage, rent and service charges to be cheaper than the cost of private rental.




London Help to Buy is an equity loan provided by the Government that allows you to buy a home with as little as 5% deposit. If you are buying in London you could get a Government loan of up to 40% of the total cost of your property on a new build home valued up to £600,000.The equity loan is for a maximum of 25 years or before the property is sold, or the mortgage is redeemed, whichever is sooner.
