With increasing property prices, we understand that not everyone can afford to buy a home outright. If you’re in this situation, then you might be able to buy a new home through shared ownership.
With shared ownership, you buy a percentage of your home and pay rent on the rest. This means your mortgage will be less and you won’t have to find a big deposit.
