How a first-time buyer bought a two-bedroom home through Shared Ownership

Good neighbour Kerry shortlisted for top award

In this diary we hear from a first-time home buyer about how she used the Shared Ownership scheme to get on the property ladder by buying a 25 per cent share in a two-bedroom home. Shared Ownership allows you to buy a share of your home (in some cases, from 10%) and pay rent on the remaining share, with the option to buy a bigger share when you can afford to.
