How does it work?

If you're struggling to save up a big enough deposit or get a large enough mortgage to buy a home, Shared Ownership could be the solution. Instead of getting a mortgage for the full property price you'll purchase a share of a home, significantly reducing the amount you need to get on the ladder.

Over time, you can staircase your way up to full ownership, buying more of the property each month, or in lump sums. Until then, you’ll pay rent on the part of the property you don’t own to a private landlord.

Your Home

Avoid compromising on size, style or location by buying a share of a home, then pay rent on the rest. Over time, purchase more of the property or choose to sell your share. You'll benefit from any property gains on your share, plus 50% of the value increase on the share you didn't buy.

Buy a share of a home worth 10x your income with Wayhome's Gradual Homeownership scheme. Instead of having to afford the whole property, you will purchase a share of the property and pay rent on the rest. You can choose to buy more of the property each month or in lump sums when you're ready.

No deposit Rent to Own

An alternative to traditional renting, this Rent to Own scheme is a way to build up equity in a home without needing any deposit. Your monthly payments will be made up of your rent, plus an extra 1.5% which is put towards paying off the property. So you can build up property wealth in the home you live in while renting.


StrideUp's home purchase plan allows you to buy a share of a home, then each month you'll make one payment made up of rent and purchase payments. If you stay for the whole term, you'll end up owning your 80% share outright. You can also choose to buy StrideUp's 20% share off them later down the line to own the home fully.
