Shared ownership is a more affordable way to buy a home. With shared ownership, you buy a share in a property and then pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share. This is normally funded by means of a deposit and a mortgage. Your initial share may be as little as 25% or as much as 75% and will depend on what you can afford and your mortgage availability at the time.
