Shared ownership

Some housing associations and other organisations operate a shared ownership scheme, where a property is owned jointly between the landlord and the tenant. These schemes can allow you to get a foot on the property ladder if you can't afford to buy a home outright. The rules governing shared ownership vary between housing associations, so it's important that you understand what your rights and responsibilities are.
