Help to Buy: Shared Ownership / New Build Shared Ownership

Help to Buy: Shared Ownership is a government-backed scheme which helps first time buyers or people returning to home-ownership, take their first steps onto the property ladder.

  • How it works

    You purchase a share in your new home, usually with a mortgage, and pay affordable rent back to Winchester City Council for the share you don’t own. The starting share can be anything from 25% - 75%. Over time, you can buy more shares in your home until you own it outright.

  • The type of home

    The homes are newly built in partnership with Winchester City Council.

  • Who is eligible
    • This must be the only home you own, here or abroad
    • You must have under £80,000 total household annual earnings
    • You are likely to be a Winchester District resident already
    • You might need a family local connection to Winchester
