  • Cashback offering has now been aligned across Shared Ownership to be set at £850 – again, this cashback will be paid to the applicants within 60 days from date of completion.
  • Minimum qualifying loan amount for Shared Ownership Range remains at £75,000.
  • All products are portable.
  • Minimum share is 25% of the full market value of the property.
  • All products allow for 10% overpayment per calendar year without ERC being charged.
  • All product fees remain at £995 and can be either paid upfront or added to the borrowing – Importantly if the product fee is added to the total loan it cannot exceed the LTV threshold for the product.
  • Shared Ownership Mortgage products for up to 95% LTV of the share can be used for First Time Buyer, Next time buyer, Remortgage and Staircasing applications.
  • We do not offer free valuations or free legals – clients need to pay for these.
  • Principle Loan amounts have to be in multiples of £50.
  • Early Repayment Charge treatment remains unchanged – please refer to rate sheets.
