The option you never knew existed
Shared ownership is another way to buy your home. You buy a percentage, and pay rent on the rest. West Kent owns part of it - but you're living there, you decorate it, and you decide when to sell.
Buying a percentage means a smaller deposit and a smaller mortgage. It's a sooner first step on the ladder for lots of people. Usually, you can also carry on buying shares, to own it 100%.
