Home ownership in England
If you are looking to buy a new home through shared ownership in England, Sanctuary offers a shared ownership scheme. The shared ownership scheme enables buyers to purchase a share of the value of the home - this is usually between 25 to 75 per cent of the value of the property - and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining portion.
When you can afford to, you can increase your share and buy your home in stages; this is known as staircasing. After a qualifying period, you may even be able to buy your home outright. Regardless of the size of the share you buy, you are a home owner.
Shared ownership is generally open to those whose joint income is less than £60,000. So we can assess whether you are eligible for a home ownership scheme you need to complete an application form, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for further advice.
