Shared ownership is another way to buy your own home. You buy a percentage, and pay rent on the rest. The housing association owns part of it — but you’re living there, you decorate it, and you decide when to sell.

Buying a percentage means a smaller deposit and smaller mortgage. It’s a sooner first step on the ladder for lots of people. Usually, you can also carry on buying shares, to own it 100%.

Overview

ASPIRE @ St Bernard’s Gate is a brand new development situated between Southall and Hanwell in the leafy residential borough of Ealing. The development features a collection of one and two bedroom Shared Ownership and Private Sale apartments set in a new neighbourhood in this little known but well-loved part of West London.

Situated on the former site of St Bernard’s Hospital, the development has been designed to create a collection of modern and stylish apartments whilst remaining sympathetic to the existing Grade II listed buildings that have been retained.

These include the magnificent entrance arch and two gatehouses which create a striking entrance to the development, St Bernard’s Chapel and the Grade II listed North House.


Local area information

From large historical parks to lush green hideaways that only locals know about, St Bernard’s Gate is surrounded by an abundance of green space offering an escape from busy urban life.

The Borough of Ealing is perhaps one of the greenest areas of London boasting numerous parks and green spaces. There are no fewer than seven parks within a thirty-minute walk of the development each with its own unique character.

From Elthorne Park with its acres of meadow leading down to the canal to the formal grounds of Walpole Park with its rich heritage, there is an open space to suit all occasions and moods. 

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city but with excellent links to Central London and beyond, residents will also benefit from improved services with the launch of Crossrail from Hanwell in 2019 reducing journey times to Liverpool Street from 44 minutes to 24 minutes.

It’s the same as buying on the open-market but you’re buying a share of a property, so therefore pay a mortgage on the part you own.

An independent mortgage advisor can help suggest which type of mortgage might be best for you, based on your situation.

Leasehold, which is essentially the contract for the share you've bought.

It means you've got the right to keep your home for a certain number of years (usually at least 125), but the land belongs to someone else. Your lease also sets out how much you need to pay each month, your responsibilities while living there and all the details of your agreement with the housing association. Make sure you go through it and ask lots of questions.

Your solicitor can help you with this.

It all depends on your lease (your contract with the housing association) so check it thoroughly and ask questions before you buy.
