A Step By Step Guide To Shared Ownership


Buying your first home can feel a little daunting, however shared ownership can be a great way to take that first leap onto the property ladder.  To help you through the buying process, we’ve put together the key steps to buying your new Shared Ownership home:

Step one

Firstly, head to our website where you can discover our properties across London and the South East, look at the development details, including specific eligibility criteria, availability, floorplans, sales brochures and virtual tours. Here, you can also find resources for any Shared Ownership queries you may have.  

Step two

When you find a property that you like the look of, click on the ‘Register Interest’ button. This will send your details directly to us so we can make sure you receive updates by email. 

Step three

You will then be required to complete an online financial assessment with a specific financial advisor (the financial advisor will differ depending on the development you’re interested in).

Step four

Once the financial advisor has confirmed your affordability, you’ll be able to make an online booking for a viewing in-person. 

Step five

Once a viewing has been arranged and you’ve been shown around one of our properties, you can put down a reservation fee on your dream home - the amount for this will vary depending on the property.
