Shared Equity Mortgages

Shared equity schemes have been a feature of the mortgage market for several years and have primarily been offered by house builders, local authorities and as part of government initiatives to help first time buyers onto the property ladder.

Typically, they allow you to combine a small deposit with a lower than average mortgage size by providing you with an ‘equity loan’ that covers a percentage of the property’s value.

You may start to repay the equity loan gradually after a set number of years – or in full, including when you come to sell the property. The value of your equity loan generally fluctuates with the value of your property, and so the amount you will pay depends on the value of the property at the time you repay.

If you’re a first-time buyer, a key worker or are on a low or moderate income and are looking to get on the property ladder find out more about the different schemes that may be suitable for you by contacting us today!
