Shared Ownership fixed for 3 years

A residential, 3 year fixed rate Shared Ownership mortgage giving customers the opportunity to buy 30-75% of their home and to rent the remainder.

Shared Ownership properties are designed to provide affordable housing for people who cannot afford to buy a home outright.

You can get a shared ownership home through a housing association. You buy a share of your home (between 30% and 75%) and pay rent on the rest. This allows you to get on the property ladder and become an owner occupier, which provides long term stability and security without overstretching your budget.  You have the option to buy a bigger share in the property at a later date.

We require a minimum share of 30% to be purchased and that the lease allows you to purchase additional shares right up to 100% of the ownership.

Most of the homes available are newly built, but some are properties being re-sold by housing associations.  All shared ownership homes in England are offered on a leasehold only basis.

The mortgage listed below moves on to our Standard Variable Rate, currently 4.9% (variable), after the initial rate period. There may be a limit on how low your interest rate can fall. This is called an ‘interest rate floor’. The interest rate floor applicable to your loan will be specified in your loan documentation.

    The amount we will lend will depend on the value of the property and a calculation based on income and expenditure. As a guide, we will take gross annual income and then apply a deduction for the annual amount paid towards any existing debts or other financial commitments. We apply the following multipliers to the amount remaining:

    Income After Deductions Sole Borrower Joint Borrowers
    £20,000-£50,000 4.25x 4.25x

    Underwriting: We take a flexible approach to underwriting and will consider each case on its merits. We do not credit score. The actual rate and APRC for your case will depend on your circumstances and our assessment of the risk.
