Key Information about buying this shared ownership property
Key information about the home
There are variations of shared ownership models which have different features. The model of shared ownership may vary depending on:
• what rules were in place at the time the home was funded or planning permission granted
• where the home is located
• whether the home is for a specific group of people
When you are looking for shared ownership homes, you should always check the Key Information document to see which model covers that specific home.
When you buy a home through shared ownership, you enter into a shared ownership lease. The lease is a legal agreement between you (the ‘leaseholder’) and the landlord. It sets out the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
Before committing to buy a shared ownership property, you should take independent legal and financial advice.
This key information document is to help you decide if shared ownership is right for you. You should read the document carefully so that you understand what you are buying, and then keep it safe for future reference. The document ‘Key information about the home’ is a summary and you should consider the information in ‘Summary of costs’ and ‘Guide to shared ownership’ before making a decision.
This does not form part of the lease. You should carefully consider the information and the
accompanying lease and discuss any issues with your legal adviser before signing the lease.
Failure to pay your rent, service charge, or mortgage could mean your home is at risk of
The costs in the document are the costs as at the date issued. These will increase (typically on an annual basis) and you should take financial advice on whether this will be sustainable for you.
