Getting one customer onto the property ladder through the Shared Ownership scheme

Mr and Mrs W wanted to move out of their council home and buy a larger property that could accommodate their growing family. They’d managed to save a deposit but couldn’t afford to buy a house in the area as prices were too high.

Plus, Mr W had previously been in a Debt Management Plan (DMP) and his income was in fact part of a benefit package as he was unable to work due to long-term health issues.

With Clever Mortgages, the couple was able to:

  • Take out a mortgage with a lender which would accept Mr W’s income
  • Buy a new family home using the Shared Ownership scheme
  • Put down a smaller deposit than they thought they’d initially need
  • Secure a 2 year fixed-rate mortgage so their circumstances could be reviewed and given the option to buy an additional share of the property

Mr and Mrs W needed a larger home to accommodate their family – however, house prices in the area were out of their reach. They were both happy with the suggestion of Shared Ownership and managed to buy a house which met their needs.

We approached a lender that was willing to take on their case and we worked together to make sure the monthly mortgage and Shared Ownership rent amounts were affordable. The couple were delighted to move out of their council home and will have their circumstances reviewed after a couple of years to see if they can buy more share of the property.
