What does 25% ownership mean?

Interested in purchasing a 2 bedroom apartment in Newton-le-Willows. We can afford the cash price but it's 25% ownership, but we're not sure what this means.

  • The cash will buy you only a 25% (one quarter) share in the property, the rest will presumably be owned by a housing association. You will have to pay rent on the remaining 75%.

  • Hi, 25% ownership will refer to owning 25% of the property, therefore you would be looking at paying rent on the further 75%. It's a method used to help those struggling to get mortgages and finances for a property purchase so that they are able to purchase a small amount of equity with respect in the long run to purchase the rest of the amount. We hope this helps.
