What is shared ownership

Shared Ownership involves buying anywhere from 10-75% of a home and paying rent on the other part to a housing association like us. You could go on to buy 100% of it in the future once you can afford to – though you don’t have to. It’s up to you.

Our residents' experiences

“It’s perfect for someone buying on their own for the first time, and it’s so much cheaper than renting – the flat in Epping I had before was £900 a month before bills, and it was a tiny little flat.”
“It’s nice having your own independence and having no-one to answer to; I can do whatever I want with it. I can paint the walls whatever colour I want, and I’m doing that. It’s great having friends over for drinks – and that I can leave stuff in the fridge and know it will still be there in the morning!”

“Finding this home with Sage means security, peace of mind, having my own space and affordable rent. It is wonderful."
