Buying a share means your mortgage and deposit will be smaller than it would be if you were to buy a similar home outright. The larger the share you buy, the cheaper your rent payments will be.
To buy a share, you can take out a mortgage or you can fund this through your savings. Most shares are funded by a mortgage though and many of Banks and Building Societies offer shared ownership mortgages. We can help you through this process by signposting you to independent mortgage advisors.
