Shared Ownership

​Shared Ownership

We understand that providing a sizeable deposit makes it difficult for many ​clients to buy their first home. That's why we support the Shared Ownership Scheme - a government initiative which aims to ​help buyers onto the property ladder by purchasing a share of a chosen property.

Why choose us?

We have worked with the Homes and Communities Agency for many years. We can lend to anybody in England and Wales and are proud to support the Shared Ownership scheme.

Studio flats and properties above commercial considered as other lenders may steer away from clients who look to purchase these types of properties. Please call the Society before submitting, to discuss your case.

Incomes come in all shapes and sizes, so we can consider clients on  new and future contracts, and ignore probationary periods. This applies as long as they are permanently employed.

What we can offer

  • Maximum LTV - 95%
  • Minimum customer deposit 5% (Forces Help to Buy and family gifted deposits accepted)
  • Terms up to 40 years
  • Builder's incentive up to 5% 
(subject to lending criteria and affordability)
