Shared Ownership gives first time buyers and those that do not currently own a home the opportunity to purchase a share in a new build or resales leasehold property. The purchaser pays a mortgage on the share they own and pays rent to a housing association on the remaining share. The combined mortgage and rent is usually less than you'd expect to pay if you bought a similar property outright although this is not a guarantee.

At Horlicks Quarter you can buy a minimum 10% share of your home (the maximum you can buy initially is 75%). When you're ready, you can buy more shares until you staircase to owning 100% of your home.

To be eligible for shared ownership you would need to meet the following criteria:

' Your annual household income does not exceed £80,000

' You have a deposit of at least 5% of the share value

' You do not own another property or have your name on the deeds or a mortgage for a property worldwide

' This will be your only residence

' You are a permanent UK resident or have indefinite right to remain

Please note the minimum share you can purchase can vary depending on your financial situation and you may be asked to purchase a larger share, should your personal circumstances permit.
