Affording to buy your own home can be difficult, but with the help of ‘The Northern Ireland Co-Ownership Scheme’, owning your own property may be a very real option available to you. Co-ownership allows you to become an owner by part-renting and part-buying the property, known as equity ‘sharing’.
You buy a share of your home (between 50% and 90% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share. You’ll need to take out a mortgage to pay for your share of the home’s purchase price. You can buy more shares in your home any time after you become the owner. This is known as staircasing.
