Joint shared ownership guidance


This guidance has been jointly produced by the Homes and Communities Agency, the Council of Mortgage Lenders and the National Housing Federation.

The guidance sets out the requirements and procedures that providers of grant-funded Help to Buy: Shared Ownership must conform to. It will be of relevance to lenders already actively lending and to those considering lending on shared ownership. It will also be of interest to conveyancers who may be instructed to carry out some of the requirements as part of the conveyancing process in first tranche and subsequent tranche sales of a shared ownership property.
