Shared ownership, as with any property purchasing option, is a complex topic. It may be the ideal way for you to get on the ladder but before you commit to anything you should fully understand how it works.
We have had lots of questions from various campaigners and advocates about our approach and our position on various housing policies relating to shared ownership. We want to answer these questions in detail so we have produced these FAQs.
We have also produced FAQs for people who are new to shared ownership.
