Shared Ownership is a type of affordable home ownership when a purchaser takes out a mortgage on a share of a property and pays rent to a landlord on the remaining share.

For example, someone might buy a 50 per cent share in a property and pay rent to the landlord on the remaining 50 per cent. Purchasers then have the opportunity to ‘staircase’ up their share of the property, gradually increasing the proportion of their home that they own outright and therefore paying less rent on the remaining portion, until they own 100 per cent of their home.

Local area information

Witney was selected by the Sunday Times as one of the best places to live in Britain and it’s easy to see why. Set on the River Windrush, with historic buildings and a picturesque centre, it’s a sought-after Cotswold market town. Located on the outskirts of Witney, Sage at Windrush Place offers excellent local facilities, including a choice of shopping opportunities, schooling for all ages and transport links via the A40 and M40.

The delightful town of Witney lies within the heart of the Oxfordshire countryside, close to the city of Oxford and on the edge of the beautiful Windrush Valley. Once famous for its wool mills and blanket production, the legacy of its prosperous past is still visible with perfectly preserved streets and houses and the charming Buttercross market place.

Fantastic choice of shops:
Careful planning and sympathetic design has seen the town move easily into the 21st century, whilst losing none of its charm as an attractive Cotswold market town. The Woolgate and Marriott’s Walk shopping centres are home to a range of top high street names and a selection of designer and individual shops. There’s also a popular farmers’ market where you can stock up on delicious local produce.

For day-to-day living Witney has much to offer: there’s first class education at all levels, a choice of vets, doctors, dental surgeries and the Witney Community Hospital. You’ll also be able to make the most of the excellent sports facilities available at the Windrush Leisure Centre and private health clubs, including fitness studios, squash, golf, tennis and swimming. Whilst for lighter entertainment, there are excellent pubs, restaurants, a 5-screen cinema and vibrant nightlife within the town.

Local attractions on your doorstep:
The countryside surrounding Witney is stunning. Bordering both the Cotswolds and the Windrush Valley, it’s an ideal area for outdoor activities. Footpaths, cycle ways and bridle paths criss-cross the landscape, offering a relaxing area in which to unwind from today’s hectic lifestyle. Popular local attractions include Cogges Manor Farm, a unique working museum of Victorian rural life, Bishops Palace - a fascinating archaeological excavation, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Witney Lake and Country Park and the majestic Blenheim Palace.

However, a description of this area would not be complete without mention of Oxford, the ‘City of Spires’, a delightful destination, positively overflowing with restaurants, art galleries, theatres, gardens, waterways and stunning architecture. This truly is an area with a little something for everyone.

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.
