  • 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 Aster support the purchase process?

    At Aster, we're committed to making your shared ownership journey smooth and stress-free. From the moment you express interest in a shared ownership property:

    • Consultation: Our dedicated Sales Negotiators will discuss your needs and guide you through the available properties that match your criteria.
    • Financial Guidance: To ensure clarity on costs and other financial matters, we direct you to our trusted partner, TMP, who are specialists in shared ownership mortgages.
    • Viewings: For new builds, viewings are conducted once the home has been reserved or after it's been handed over. For re-sales, the vendor themselves will manage and conduct the viewings, ensuring a personalised experience.
    • Paperwork & Legalities: We offer assistance with the paperwork, guiding you through the application process, and liaising with solicitors to ensure the legal side is handled efficiently.
    • Post-purchase Support: Even after you've moved in, we have a post-sales team that will be able to assist with any queries or support you may need, ensuring your transition into your new home is seamless.
  • 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.
