The process of buying a "Shared Ownership" property is very similar to the "normal" process of buying a property. The only difference is that the paperwork involved is greater and involves more documentation than in the "normal" buying process.
The principle of Shared Ownership simply involves the purchase of a percentage of a property rather than buying the property outright. Why the process includes lengthier documentation than a "normal" purchase is that the property will always be leasehold which makes it even more important that you seek clear professional advice from our experienced property specialists.
