Affordability guide

What can I afford?

It all depends on your household income, as affordability is assessed based on the 40% Net Income Approach.

2 Bedroom SOLD

As a rough estimate the minium household income required to purchase from the last phase was £30,894; however, people with a lower income may be able to secure a property if they have a larger deposit. (i.e. if you have a larger deposit saved, where you have higher savings, your household income can be lower than the figure quoted above).

2 Bed based on a £94,000 for a 40% share

How it works

Shared Ownership is a government-backed scheme which allows first-time buyers – or those who do not currently own a property – the opportunity to purchase a home at a more affordable price.

Affordability Guide graphic for Shared Ownership from Legal And General Affordable Homes based on a 5 percent deposit and a 40 percent share value.

The Shared Ownership scheme is simple – you buy an initial share of  between 40% and 75% of the homes full value and pay a subsidised rent on the remainder.

You may purchase further shares (up to 100%) as your circumstances change, should you choose to.
