Buying a home through Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership is a great way for many first time buyers to get on the housing ladder.  ‚Äč

This makes things a lot more affordable as it means you don't need such a big deposit. We explain more below.

Buying a home through Shared Ownership

If you buy a Shared Ownership home through Optivo you can purchase a share of between 25% and 75% of the property from us.  You’ll then pay a monthly rent for the share of the property that we still own and also pay towards any service charges owed.

For example, buying a 40% share in a property means you pay a deposit and mortgage on the 40% share you own and pay rent on the 60% of the property we own.
