Are you dreaming of owning your own
home but think you can’t afford it? Think again – shared ownership can make that dream a reality.

Shared ownership is a scheme that allows you to buy a share of your property, usually between 40% and 75%, and pay subsidised rent on the rest.

It’s a great way to get on the property ladder and often proves to be more affordable than renting.

There are certain criteria that you need to
match to be eligible for shared ownership so
to get all the details please contact John Shepherd New Homes today.

You’ll notice that on most of our property listings we say that a local connection to
the area is needed. This is because the homes for sale in these areas have been built specifically to help meet the needs of local people who can’t
afford to get on the housing ladder any other

The local area connection criteria varies between sites, but generally it’s based on:

Being a resident (or employed within) the area for a number of years (usually between 2-5)
Family connections – for example, parent, grandparent, child, grandchild or adult sibling – who have lived in the area for at least three years.

Priority will be given to applicants who
have a connection to Solihull Metropolitan
Borough Council.
