Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership is for people who want to own their own home but cannot afford to buy a property outright.

Check out our video below that explains how the scheme works.

Shared ownership is a scheme that allows you to buy a share of your property, usually 40%, and pay a rent on the remaining share. Shared ownership allows you to buy more shares when you can afford to, you can usually increase the shares of your property, (known as staircasing), until you own it outright, but this is entirely up to you.

Alliance Homes offer a range of shared ownership properties across North Somerset, South Gloucestershire, Bristol and Bath and North East Somerset. Click here to view all our available properties.
