Outright sale and shared ownership

You can also buy homes, either in full or through shared ownership. Shared ownership allows you to buy a share of your home (25% to 75% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share. You’ll need to take out a mortgage to pay for your share of the home’s purchase price.
