Up to 100% Mortgages for Home stake Property Purchases, put simply they allow you to buy a larger property than you maybe could usually afford by sharing the ownership with another party, normally a Local Authority or Housing Association but many other types of private companies now use shared ownership to provide affordable housing. We are pleased to be involved in homestake mortgages and have a large amount of knowledge in obtaining the right funding for the general public even with no proof of income or bad debts.

Homestake is a new concept to assist people on low income who wish to purchase a home but cannot afford the full asking price. Home stake was launched by the Minister for Communities, Malcolm Chisholm, on 8 March 2005 and has been developed by Communities Scotland, the Scottish Executive's housing and regeneration agency. The principle is quite simple and affective a grant is given to a registered social landlord to help them fund part of the price of a Home stake property. You the purchaser pay the majority share in the property, usually with a home share mortgage, between 60 and 80 percent of the price and the registered social landlord will use the grant to pay for the rest. The Homestake owner is the outright owner and responsible for paying off the homestake mortgage and all other charges associated with the purchase and running of the property just like any normal homeowner. The massive benefit from these schemes to Shared Ownership is that there is no rent to pay on the amount that you don't own, this is an amazing benefit to Scottish first time buyer purchasers.

After a 2 year period the Home stake owner can if they have the finances or further advance mortgage funding increase their share of the property to anything upto the full current amount if they fare able to.

When the Homestake owner decides to sell the house to perhaps move onto sole ownership on a new scottish property both the registered social landlord and the Home stake owner receive their full share of the property value at that time. This is of course a great leg up for Scottish purchasers.

We have the expertise to be able to assist you and look forward to receiving your no obligation enquiry for a homestake mortgage.
