Shared Ownership

It allows you to purchase a property at shares between 25% and 75%. The share you purchase is funded by you - if you need a mortgage which you will arrange this with a bank or building society. The remaining share is rented from Cheviot Homes.

Shared Ownership Eligibility

Shared Ownership is aimed at helping people in housing need who are unable to purchase a property on the open market.

We give priority to applicants who fit our basic eligibility criteria which includes:

Resale properties are Shared Ownership homes which were originally sold by the Association. If the current Shared Owner wishes to sell their property, we provide a service to help them identify a purchaser by advertising their home on our website.
