Shared Ownership

If you are a registered provider needing to draft leases for shared ownership sales, we can help.

Alternatively, if you are purchasing a shared ownership property, we can guide you through the whole process. 

Shared ownership leases

Whatever the size of your site – whether it’s a small rural site or a large flagship development, we can help you with shared ownership leases. With over 20 years’ experience dealing with shared ownership leases our dedicated team will deal with the overall set-up of the site and the drafting of the shared ownership lease. Whilst a model lease from the Homes and Communities Agency is used, care needs to be taken with regard to drafting site specific provisions. We work closely with you to ensure the leases are tailored to the site and crucially match the way you will manage the properties.

Being involved from the early stages of the development is beneficial when it comes to dealing with the individual plot sales. We have extensive knowledge and expertise in shared ownership sales and we are dedicated to ensuring that the selling process is as seamless as possible.

How can we help shared ownership buyers?

Where we are not acting for a registered provider selling shared ownership plots, we often act as recommended solicitors for purchasers of shared ownership properties because of our specialist knowledge and experience.

If you are buying a shared ownership property, once you have been allocated a property by a registered provider or have had a sale agreed on a re-sale of a shared ownership property by the current owner, you will need to instruct a lawyer to deal with your purchase. We have over 20 years’ experience dealing with shared ownership purchases and will guide you through the process from the initial stages right through until you get the keys on completion. You will have one member of the team as your main point of contact but there will always be other members of the team who can help answer your queries if that person is not available. We will communicate with you regularly during the transaction and be available to answer your queries via telephone and email.

Let us help you

We understand that purchasing a property can be a daunting experience. Our team are highly skilled and very familiar with a number of registered providers working across the South West. We know how they do things and we will work together to make sure that the process is as efficient and stress-free as possible for you.
