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

St Helier Place is a development that is comprised of six 1 bedroom apartments, available now through shared ownership.

St Helier Place is a development that offers all of the perks of metropolitan living without being immersed in hectic everyday city life. Taking the shape of an old office building, St Helier Place seamlessly combines thoughtfully designed layouts and interiors in a rural area and introduces a nice break from the hustle and bustle of Central London.

Please note: Not all the properties come with parking on this development.


Local area information

LOCATION:
Despite the vast expansion of London and its urban nature, some of the pre-cosmopolitan, rural character of the district and town of Morden has survived. The grand period buildings alongside Morden's parks have withstood London's urbanisation. The area retains a good stock of green, open spaces with many of them previously belonging to former country estates. Surrounded by everything that you need for modern living, with access to London public transport, St Helier Place is the perfect medium for the city lover in need of some space. 

TRANSPORT:
St Helier railway station is in the London Borough of Merton in South London, 1 mile away from St Helier Place. The station is served by Thameslink and Southern Railway, and is on the Sutton Loop Line. Morden Underground Station is 2 miles away from St Helier Place, offering the services of the Northern Line in Travelcard Zone 4, where Central London destinations, such as Leicester Square, can be reached in just 30 minutes. 

THINGS TO DO:
With an abundance of entertainment available to you in the city of London, there is plenty to keep you busy. Whether you're planning a day trip with your family or a night out with friends, there is something to suit every occasion. 

With the bustling city centre of London easily accessible on the Underground, you have a wealth of dining and entertainment experiences available to you. If you're looking for something more local however, there is a large choice of restaurants and takeaway options which together offer a wide range of cuisines.

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.

No, but it all depends on your lease (your contract with the housing association) so check it thoroughly and ask questions before you buy.
