Shared ownership allows the buyer to purchase a percentage of the property with the remaining amount owned by the housing provider. The buyer then pays a mortgage on the share that they own and rent on the remaining percentage.
Shared ownership also provides the opportunity to do a staircase purchase – so you can increase the portion you own as your wealth/income increases. Some housing associations will allow you purchase 100% of the property.
