What is Shared Ownership Conveyancing?

Shared ownership is a government scheme designed to help people get on the property ladder by allowing them to purchase a portion (usually between 25% and 75%) of a property and pay rent on the remaining share owned by a housing association. Shared ownership conveyancing refers to the legal process involved in transferring ownership of your share in a shared ownership property. This can occur in two main scenarios:

Buying a Shared Ownership Property

This involves the initial purchase of your share of the property from a housing association or previous owner. Shared ownership conveyancing in this situation ensures the legal transfer of ownership for your share is registered with the Land Registry. Our team at Clarity Legal will handle all the legal aspects, including:

 

  • Reviewing the Shared Ownership Lease: We’ll meticulously examine the lease agreement, explaining the key terms and conditions that govern your rights and responsibilities as a shared owner. This includes details like rent payments, maintenance obligations, selling your share, and potential limitations on modifications to the property.
  • Liaising with the Housing Association: We’ll communicate effectively with the housing association on your behalf to ensure a smooth and timely transaction. This might involve obtaining various documents, approvals, or confirmations related to the purchase.
  • Transferring Ownership: We’ll handle the legal transfer of your shared ownership interest, ensuring all the paperwork is accurate and submitted to the Land Registry for official registration.

Selling a Shared Ownership Property

If you decide to sell your shared ownership property, conveyancing ensures a smooth legal handover to the new buyer. Clarity Legal will:

 

  • Prepare the legal documents for the sale, ensuring they comply with the terms of the lease agreement.
  • Liaise with the housing association to obtain their approval for the sale and ensure any outstanding fees or charges are settled.
