Making your first home affordable

Shared ownership helps people on to the property ladder whether as a first time buyer or as somebody who wants to get back into owning their own home. You’ll start by buying a share of your new home and then pay affordable rent on the remaining part which is owned by us.

Then, as time goes on, you can buy more shares in your home, up to a maximum of 80%. It may all sound complicated, but it’s not. We’ll be on hand to talk you through the buying process and ongoing responsibilities of owning a shared ownership property. Don’t worry, it’s all amazingly straight forward and simple to understand.

Also known as ‘part buy, part rent’, shared ownership is backed by the government with further support from Winchester City Council. You’ll soon understand that this is a great way to become a home owner with all the opportunities and excitement that this brings. We are looking forward to getting you on that first step!
