  • What is shared ownership?

    So, what is shared ownership? Shared ownership is a government-backed scheme designed to help individuals who may not afford to buy a home outright on the open market.

    Under this scheme, you purchase a share of a property (typically between 25% and 75%) and pay a reduced rent on the remaining share.

    Over time, if you wish, you can buy more shares in your home, a process known as "staircasing", until you own 100% of it. This approach makes homeownership more accessible for many and serves as a stepping stone towards full homeownership.

  • How does Shared Ownership work?

    Forget about having to scrape together a deposit upwards of £10,000 - shared ownership works by allowing you to purchase a share of a home – usually between 40% and 75% to make it more affordable (in some cases, you can even buy as low as 10% depending on the terms of the lease).

    This means you only pay a mortgage on the percentage of the property you own with a deposit as low as 5% of the total share amount, you then pay a below-market rent on your brand new home to us at Aster. It can help you get on the property ladder much faster and provides long term security.

  • How do I qualify for Shared Ownership?

    There's a few bits and pieces you need to tick to be able to buy a shared ownership home, but not much. These are:

    • You must be 18 or over
    • Your household is bringing in no more than £80,000 income a year (or £90,000 if you're in London)
    • You don't own a home already
    • You may be in the process of selling a home, however, to be able to buy a shared ownership home from us, the property sale must have an offer accepted before we will accept your application
    • You're able to show you can afford to maintain the costs of buying your own home
    • You're a British or EU/EEA citizen or have indefinite leave to remain
  • Who do I share with?

    You don’t have to share your shared ownership home with anyone, other than your partner or your family of course. You’ve bought it and you can live as you please, just as with any other home purchase. The term shared ownership is just used to describe the relationship between you and Aster.

  • How can I buy a Shared Ownership home?

    The first step in buying your shared ownership home with Aster is to contact us, either by filling in the contact form or over the phone.

  • What happens when I want to sell my Shared Ownership home?

    When you want to sell, your property gets valued and placed on the market with Aster at a rate of 1.5% then after the nomination period set out in your lease, then if your home hasn’t sold, you’re free to go to another agent of your choice and sell it through them.

  • How do Shared Ownership mortgages work?

    Having the right understanding of mortgages, how they work and which ones work best for you is incredibly important. It could save you thousands. We all know mortgages weren’t readily discussed in schools – but don't worry we’re going to take you through everything you need to know about mortgages – and, more specifically, shared ownership mortgages.

    There are a range of mortgages available to you – but the main two you need to know about are fixed rate mortgages and variable rate mortgages. And these are pretty much exactly as they sound:

    Fixed rate mortgages are the ones where your interest rate is fixed for several years, usually 2, 3, 5 or 10.

    Variable rate (or, standard variable rate) mortgages involve an interest rate set by each mortgage lender and the borrower (you) will revert to this once your initial fixed rate term expires. And, you guessed it, this rate can ‘vary’.

    More information can be found on our mortgage page.

  • Are there any additional costs involved?

    Yes, as with any property purchase, there are additional costs to be aware of:

    • Deposit: This is a percentage of the cost of the share you're buying, not the total property value.
    • Mortgage Fees: Depending on your lender, there may be arrangement fees or valuation fees.
    • Solicitor's Fees: This covers the legal work associated with purchasing a home.
    • Stamp Duty: Depending on the property value and your circumstances, you might need to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax.
    • Home Insurance: You'll need to insure your new home, and there might be associated costs.
    • Service Charge & Maintenance: If the property has communal areas or services, you might need to pay a monthly service charge.

    It's essential to factor in these costs when budgeting for your shared ownership home. Our team at Aster is here to guide you through these expenses, ensuring there are no unexpected surprises.

    Read through our guide to fees. We’ll walk you through these.
