Buy a share of a home


Maximum property price £600,000

How does it work?

Your Home is a private Shared Ownership provider. They can help you get on the property ladder without you having to compromise on size, style or location to achieve home ownership. 

It works by purchasing a share of a home, then paying monthly rent on the part you don't buy to Your Home. Later down the line, if you want to buy more of the property you can or choose to sell your share, benefitting from any property value gains.

To see if you're eligible, create a free Tembo plan for a personalised recommendation.

We help buyers, movers and homeowners discover how they could boost their affordability in 3 simple steps. It’s why we’re the UK’s Best Mortgage Broker.


Things to consider

Not every mortgage is for everyone. Here’s some things you should know before applying.


What are the benefits?

Buy a share of a home worth up to £600,000

As long as you meet Your Home's affordability criteria, you could purchase a share of a property worth up to £600,000.

Live debt-free and avoid paying interest

As long as you have enough cash to purchase at least 25% of the property up front, you can live mortgage free by paying rent on the portion of the property you don't own. If you don't want to buy more of the property, you don't have to.

You'll benefit from any increase in value

If the property's value has increased over time, when it comes to selling you'll benefit from the increased value of the share you bought. Plus, you are also entitled to 50% of the value increase on the share you didn't buy.

Risks and considerations

You must put down a minimum 25% deposit

While you can buy up to 75% of the property, the minimum share size you can purchase is 25% which must be a cash deposit. So to be eligible for the scheme, you must have at least 25% of the property value saved up.

The property must meet Your Home's requirements

To be eligible for Your Home's scheme, the property you choose must be a freehold and cannot be a new-build - so only pre-owned homes qualify.

You'll have to pay rent

You’ll have to pay rent on the share of the home you don’t own. Your rent increases yearly by 0.50%, plus the Retail Price Index (RPI). If the RPI is zero or negative, your rent will only increase by 0.50%. To qualify, you’ll need to pass affordability checks to ensure you can afford to pay the rent payments and buy more of the property over time.
