Shared Ownership Solicitors

Buying a shared ownership property can seem a daunting task.  Why not entrust your purchase of a shared ownership property to the largest conveyancing firm in the south east with a 90%+ satisfaction rating from over 1,000 clients a year who would recommend us to family member or friend, or would use on a further transaction?

We will give you a competitive fixed price at the start of the transaction so that you can budget with confidence.  You will be allocated a conveyancer who will deal with your matter from start to finish so that you have just one point of contact.  They have a dedicated email and direct dial telephone number should you need to contact them at any time.  We are on the panel of all major lenders so that we can act on behalf of your mortgage lender.

Shared ownership is an exciting method of purchasing a property but there are unusual aspects to a shared ownership lease.  We will explain in plain English the issues of staircasing (buying a further share in the property), the rent review clause, and the clauses regarding how you wish to sell the property in the future.  

We deal with all major Housing Associations in the south east and beyond and have been involved on a number of individual and development shared ownership properties over the years. We are able to work within the tight deadlines that Housing Associations usually require to enable you to purchase your property.

We will provide you with an online case tracking user name and password so that you are able to track the progress on your case 24-hours-a-day 7-days-a-week.  We will provide you with updates and copy documents to check throughout the transaction so that you can proceed with confidence and knowledge.  Our aim is to enable you to complete your shared ownership purchase as quickly as possible and to take all practical steps to deal with matters in a practical and friendly way whilst protecting your interests at all times.
