Popular Shared Ownership Scenarios in Sheffield
Shared Ownership is known to be a complicated scheme and is one we find many of our customers enquire about as their knowledgeable Mortgage Broker in Sheffield.
Our team aims to make it as straightforward as it can be, providing you with knowledge of every aspect of the scheme. Below shows the most common questions we get when dealing with customers.
Do I need a deposit?
Yes, you do need a deposit. This is something applicants believe isn’t required for a Shared Ownership mortgage. Like many mortgage types, it’s very likely you will be required to put a down deposit.
As mentioned, a Shared Ownership mortgage is where you are taking out a mortgage on a percentage of the property, therefore, requiring you to put down a deposit. The deposit can vary based on the property percentage.
For example, if you are looking at a property that is valued at £300,000 and are taking on 50% mortgage share, you will need to put down a deposit of £7,500 of the property. You would be on a 95% loan to value if you put down a 5% deposit on this amount. You will have access to more deals when you put more deposit down and can also lower your monthly payments.
Are there any other fees that come with Shared Ownership?
When taking out a Shared Ownership mortgage, you will have to allow for mortgage costs and your rent costs. The costs will be set out as a regular monthly cost, just like other mortgage payments. Along with this, you will be paying background rent and service charges because all Shared Ownership homes will be leasehold.
As well as this, you may want to look at getting a property survey carried out. This is helpful as it can flag up any problems with the property which could potentially decrease the property’s overall value.
Can you take out a Shared Ownership mortgage on any property?
There are only a number of selected properties that are available through the Shared Ownership mortgage. The types of properties include new build properties, a property that is already under shared ownership and is being resold and homes that meets specialist needs like a ground floor flat for someone with a long-term disability.
These details will be explained by your dedicated Mortgage Advisor in Sheffield. All our new/existing customers are offered a free mortgage appointment so book yourself in to begin the Shared Ownership process.
