Mortgage Advice for Shared Ownership in Leeds

The Shared Ownership scheme is perfect if you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home. It works out by taking out a mortgage on a smaller percentage of a property, the remaining percentage is owned by the local authority or builder. The amount you will have to purchase is usually between 25-75% share of the property, however, lenders might allow you to purchase as little as 10%.



Paying a smaller percentage of a property does mean you will be expected to pay a monthly rental fee to the proprietor of the remaining shares. As well as this, you are required to pay ground and service charges because all Shared Ownership homes are classified as leasehold.

Popular Scenarios for Shared Ownership in Leeds

Our team provide a service that allows you to understand what is going on throughout your mortgage journey by keeping the mortgage jargon to a minimum so you can get what the scheme is all about. Here are some FAQs we hear in the circumstance of a Shared Ownership in Leeds.

Do I need a deposit?

We have found that numerous customers believe that you are not required to put down a deposit for a Shared Ownership in Leeds. This is incorrect, you will need to put down a deposit for a Shared Ownership. Furthermore, you will find that the majority of mortgage types will ask you to contribute some form of a deposit.


The Shared Ownership scheme involves you taking out a mortgage that shows that you own a percentage of the property. The percentage you own is reflected in the amount of deposit you put down. For instance, if your property was valued at £300,000 and you wanted to buy 50% of the share, you will be expected to put down a deposit of £150,000.


Likewise, if you put down a small deposit like 5%, your £150,000 would be on a 95% loan-to-value.


Remember, the more you put down in deposit, the more deals that will be on offer to you and lower your potential mortgage payments.

Can I increase my share of the property?

If you were to do this, the practice would be called staircasing as you are raising the share you own at any time.


For example, if you are only in ownership of 25% of the property in the first before, you are able to purchase a further 25% should it be affordable in the future.


When doing this, you will find that you will be making lower amounts on your rental costs because you are increasing your share, however your mortgage payments will keep consistent.
