Mortgage advice for those looking at Shared Ownership in Cardiff

Shared Ownership is a government-led Help to Buy scheme that was introduced to support struggling applicants who cannot afford a full mortgage. The share you can buy is usually between 25% and 75%. You can buy a 10% share on some homes and then pay off the remaining percentage back through rent.

You will pay this rent to the Housing Association/Builder that owns the other percentage of the property. The Shared Ownership scheme can sometimes get complicated, therefore, it may be beneficial to speak with a Shared Ownership mortgage advisor in Cardiff.

What are the requirements for Shared Ownership in Cardiff?

Before you can access the scheme, we need to check whether you qualify. If you do not fit the criteria for this scheme, we would recommend that you explore other government schemes that are available. First of all, we would recommend the Help to Buy the Equity Loan scheme which is a great solution for first time buyers in Cardiff. Below are the Shared Ownership scheme requirements:

  • You need to be at least 18 years old
  • Your annual household income cannot be any higher than £80,000
  • You should not be able to afford a property on the open market
  • You should not be in mortgage or rent arrears
  • You need to provide evidence of good credit history to pass the credit checks and affordability assessments

How does Shared Ownership in Cardiff work?

Shared Ownership is a mortgage scheme that allows you to purchase a percentage of a property and pay rent for the remaining share. You can apply for a Shared Ownership mortgage on 10% to 75% of the property value. For instance, if you take out a mortgage on 65% of the property, you will make mortgage payments on this amount and pay rent on the remaining 35%.

Common FAQs for Shared Ownership Mortgages in Cardiff

How much deposit do I need for a Shared Ownership mortgage?

Accorion Arrow

Since you are taking out a mortgage on a percentage of the property, you only must put down a deposit on this total. If the minimum deposit that you are required to put down is 5%, your deposit on a share of 10%-75% will be cheaper than a deposit on 100% of the property price.

Can I get a Shared Ownership mortgage in Cardiff with bad credit?

Accorion Arrow

If you have bad credit in Cardiff, you may face challenges in qualifying for the Shared Ownership scheme. Most lenders do not accept applicants with poor credit ratings. However, there are specialist lenders who cater to bad credit applicants or those with low credit scores. Our mortgage advisors in Cardiff can help you explore these options to find a suitable deal for your financial situation.

Do I need a mortgage for Shared Ownership in Cardiff?

Accorion Arrow

Shared Ownership is itself a mortgage, and you will make monthly payments to pay it off. Additionally, you will also need to make rental payments on the remaining share of the property to the housing association.

To utilise Shared Ownership, you must be a first time buyer, and you cannot own another property. It’s also important to note that you can only apply for a Shared Ownership mortgage on a new build property, which will be leasehold.

What is the minimum income for Shared Ownership in Cardiff?

Accorion Arrow

To qualify for Shared Ownership in Cardiff, you need to be at least 18 years old, and your annual household income should be less than £80,000. If your income is higher than this, you are unlikely to be eligible for the scheme.

Popular Scenarios for Shared Ownership in Cardiff

Do I need a deposit?

Accorion Arrow

Yes, you need a deposit for a Shared Ownership mortgage. In most scenarios, you will need a deposit for any type of mortgage.

The deposit amount that you will have to put down will vary depending on the percentage that you own. For example, if your property is valued at £300,000 and you own a 50% mortgage share, you will need to put down a deposit on £7,500 of the property.

Are there any other fees that come with Shared Ownership?

Accorion Arrow

Similar to all mortgage types, when it comes to Shared Ownership you will have to account for lots of different costs. Of course, you have to consider your monthly repayments, both rent and mortgage payments. On top of this, you will also have to factor in property survey costs, arrangement fees and legal fees.

One of our mortgage advisors in Cardiff will be more than happy to break down these costs for you.

Can you take out a Shared Ownership mortgage on any property?

Accorion Arrow

Unfortunately, only a number of selected properties are available via the Shared Ownership scheme. The property has to either be a new build, a property that is already under shared ownership and is being resold or a property that meets specialist needs like a ground floor flat for someone with a long-term disability.
