Purchase a home with a partner, friend or relative
A common misconception about Shared Ownership is that you need to purchase a home on your own. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, Shared Ownership was created to be as flexible as possible to help you get on the property ladder.
With this in mind, you can purchase a Shared Ownership property with your partner, a friend, brother, sister, cousin or anyone else you deem to be of housemate material.
There are also plenty of benefits of buying with another person. For example, there are two or more people to fill in financial assessment forms, multiple hands to unpack boxes, and someone else to help with potentially tricky DIY tasks such as putting up a shelf.
Additionally, buying with a partner, friend or relative means you increase your total household earnings, which makes it easier to get a mortgage.
