what is shared ownership?

‘Shared ownership’ of a bunnyhomes local parish home is the perfect solution for those looking to own their own home, but not yet in the position to buy outright. It works by enabling you to pay a combination of mortgage and rent each month, at a level that’s right for you. As time goes by and circumstances change, you can adjust the balance between mortgage and rent. In small bunny steps, at a pace to suit you, you can slowly increase the mortgage and reduce the rent until your bunnyhomes local parish home is completely yours! This method of adjusting how you pay over time is called ‘staircasing’.

the maths bit

How does the combination of mortgage and rent work? Imagine your dream local parish home is a delicious apple pie. You can divide it into 2 portions any size you like — one portion is rented, and the other is mortgaged. You could have 3/4 (75%) of the pie as mortgage, and 1/4 (25%) as rent.

mortgage/rent split examples

Based on a purchase price of £325,000, this is how that would look:

  • 75% Mortgaged portion: £243,750
  • 25% Rented portion: £169.27 per month
  • Deposit required based on 10% of mortgage value: £24,375

Or, you cut your pie up quite differently, for a much smaller mortgage and a higher monthly rent:

  • 40% Mortgaged portion: £130,000
  • 60% Rented portion: £270.83 per month
  • Deposit required based on 10% of mortgage value: £13,000
