Buying a Shared Ownership Property

Struggling to get a foot on the housing ladder? Shared ownership may be the answer.

A household earning £80,000 a year or less may be able to buy a share of a property (typically 25% to 75%) and pay rent to a housing association on the remaining share. When it can afford to do so, a household can buy a bigger share of a property.

At any one time there are usually a number of shared ownership properties available through housing associations. Most will be new build properties but some will be existing properties for resale.

Associations are building at least 170 shared ownership homes in Stratford-on-Avon District in a wide range of locations between April 2017 and March 2019.

To find out more about what shared ownership properties are available in this District and whether you are eligible to purchase a property, follow the housing association links below.

The Help to Buy Midlands website provides comprehensive information about shared ownership and other ways to buy a property. However, only a few shared ownership properties in this district are advertised on the website. Go to housing associations' own websites to check the availability of shared ownership homes locally.

If you have long term disabilities, you may be able to buy a shared ownership home via the Home Ownership for People with Long-Term Disabilities (HOLD) scheme.
