Wiltshire Council Shared Ownership
When I part buy/part-rent my home, what am I buying?
You will be purchasing a leasehold home and this will be either a new build or resale home. However, as you are not buying the whole of the property outright, you will be paying rent on the remaining portion.
The minimum share you can buy is 10% and you have the option to buy further shares if you are able to. This is known as "staircasing". The price you pay for further shares is based on an updated valuation of your home. See section Can I buy more shares?.
