Property description

An excellent opportunity to buy a 40% share in this shared ownership property in the heart of Portsmouth. Please ask our staff about eligibility and to arrange a viewing. Launch day Sunday 16th July - call to book your appointment. Please call Fox and Sons on .

The Aqua building is located at the junction of Prince George Street and Cross Street in central Portsmouth. The building faces onto Prince George Street and is attached to a sister building of private homes that faces onto Cross Street. Entry to the development is via an access road just off Prince George Street. The available properties at Aqua are located on the second and third floors of the building. Most Shared Ownership properties have their own allocated parking space. The parking area also houses two cycle sheds for the use of the whole development.

These attractive 1-bedroom apartments feature a spacious bedroom and bathroom in addition to a large living/kitchen/dining area that leads to a balcony. The apartment also has a sizeable storage closet.

What is Shared Ownership?
Shared Ownership is an excellent way for people who are unable to buy on the open market to take their first step onto the property ladder. Under most Shared Ownership schemes, you buy a share of between 25% and 75% of the property's value and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share. A key advantage is that, as part-owner, you have a stability of tenure that renting cannot offer. Over time, you can usually buy more of the property until you own 100%.

You will need a small deposit at the outset - generally a minimum of 5% of your share, subject to conditions - and you will need to raise a mortgage on the rest of the sum required.
