Your shared ownership mortgage solicitor in London

It’s no secret that the UK property market is difficult to get into. Today’s generation of young people are the first since Victorian times to be worse off than their parents. This is startlingly apparent in the realms of house buying, where even in their 30s and 40s, especially in big cities such as London and Bristol, people can’t afford to get on the property ladder.

This is one reason why shared ownership is becoming an increasingly popular house buying model. As your mortgage solicitor in London, at Saracens Solicitors, we have experts who focus on this area of property law.

What is shared ownership?

This is where you get a mortgage for part of the value of a property, and a housing association owns the other share. You then pay a reduced rent to the housing association for their share. The level of share you have can be negotiated with the housing association and could be anything from 25-75%.

Most housing associations will also give you the chance to increase your share of the property and even buy it outright eventually.
