Key Benefits

These are the key benefits of the Shared Ownership Homes Scheme


Full details of the scheme can be found on our consumer website but by way of a summary, here are the key benefits to a person with a disability.

  • A real choice of where to live: if the person with a disability is living at home with parents and would prefer to move out, Shared Ownership Homes introduces the possibility of moving close to the family home where continued close involvement of parents, relatives and friends remains practicable
  • Long term security: residential care homes and tenanted accommodation do not provide long term security - your own home does!
  • More control
  • Better quality accommodation with a regulated landlord for the rented share of the property

Buying a home with Shared Ownership Homes means:

  • No charge to the individual in respect of fees associated with the purchase of the home: fees such as legal and valuation costs are borne by Shared Ownership Homes, which in turn are funded by the partners (Housing Association; Care Purchaser; Lender)
  • Free help and advice in all stages of the transaction: to include help with the completion of mortgage and State Benefits applications
  • Free help and advice to find a suitable property to buy
