Multiple Shared Ownership Launches In London

Posted 21 January 2022 by Keith Osborne

New Shared Ownership properties are coming to the market at developments across Greater London...

Property-hunters in Greater London looking for an affordable way onto the property ladder can benefit from a very active Shared Ownership market with several development launches across the capital.

Shared Ownership is a government-backed scheme where people can part buy-part rent a home. They can start by owning 25% to 75% of the property, paying a subsidised rent on what they don’t own, and over time, as they can afford to, they can choose to purchase further shares – a process known as staircasing – until they own 100% of it. The advantage is the buyers can start using a much lower deposit and mortgage than they would need if buying the same home outright.

A number of major housing providers are working hard on meeting the demand for affordable new homes in London, and the latest launches will be an excellent way for those seeking a one to learn about the very latest availability.
