Buying your dream home could be more affordable than you think with one of our Shared Ownership properties. You can purchase your own property, without saving up the high deposit of purchasing outright. Check our current properties, available from as little as a 25% minimum share.
We’re committed to providing first-class customer service, from the moment you arrive to when you open the door of your new home. Our experienced Sales Consultants will be with you every step of the way throughout your application process. Get in touch to find out if you’re eligible for a Shared Ownership property.
With the reservation complete, you’ll need to instruct a solicitor and begin your legal paperwork to purchase the property. We make the process as smooth and seamless as possible, including breaking down technical terms with our jargon buster.
Get ready to sign on the dotted line! It’s time to exchange contracts, which are legally binding agreements between the buyer and seller about the purchase of your property. You will also find out more about your completion date during this stage of the process.
Congratulations, you’re officially a homeowner! But the journey doesn’t stop there – we will continue to be on hand to provide help for any queries even after you’re all moved in.
