About shared ownership
If you would like to buy a property but cannot afford a mortgage on the full purchase price then we may be able to help you with one of our shared ownership schemes. We have shared ownership properties available across Kent and parts of Sussex. They range from one and two bedroom flats to two and three bedroom houses.
Shared ownership – sometimes known as part-rent/part buy – is an ideal way for people to get a foot on the property ladder.
You take out a mortgage to buy part of the house – typically between 25% and 75% – and pay a discounted rent to us on the other portion. If your circumstances change in the future you can buy a bigger share in the property.
Priority is given to the following:
- Existing council or housing association tenants
- Those on the local Housing Register
- Some schemes also require strong local connections.
