Shared Ownership Resources was launched in 2021 by Sue Phillips (FCCA). She has personal experience of shared ownership having purchased her first 50% share in a flat in 1999, staircased to 100% in 2013, and extended her lease in 2020.
Information on the shared ownership scheme can be over-simplified, downplaying potential risks, hazards and long-term costs. Ongoing reforms further complicate the picture. Sue believes that homebuyers and shared owners deserve independent and impartial information and advice in order to make good decisions.
Shared Ownership Resources offers information and advice on shared ownership from a range of different perspectives including: housing professionals, legal experts, RICS surveyors, mortgage brokers, campaigners, academic researchers and shared owners.
Shared ownership can work for some people, some of the time. But Shared Ownership Resources doesn’t shy away from identifying and exploring risks and downsides of the tenure, offering scrutiny and crucial business insights.
