What does Shared Ownership involve?

Shared Ownership is a government scheme providing a great opportunity for first time buyers to get onto the property ladder. The scheme gives you the chance to buy a share between 25% and 75% in a new build property, enabling you to purchase your home in stages, as you can afford it. The bigger the share you buy initially, the less rent you will have to pay!
