How to apply
If you are interested in shared ownership, you can get details of available properties from the participating social landlord in your area.
They might already have a waiting list of people who want shared ownership, and they'll take your housing needs into account to see where you'll sit on the list.
If you are eligible, the housing association will give you an application form to complete. If you're successful, they'll contact you when there's a home available and tell you the next steps you'll need to take.
How to qualify
Priority for shared ownership housing will be given to:
- first time buyers with limited housing alternatives
- members of the armed forces
- veterans who have left the armed forces within the past two years
- widows, widowers and other partners of service personnel for up to two years after their partner was killed while serving
- public sector tenants
- families on low incomes
- disabled people
If you can afford to buy a house outright, you won't qualify for shared ownership housing.
