Guide to Buying

Metropolitan is one of the UK’s leading providers of Shared Ownership and has a long and successful track record in helping first-time buyers in to affordable home ownership. Our award winning sales and marketing service is ready to help you make your move.

With Metropolitan's Shared Ownership (also referred to as part buy, part rent) homes you choose a new or resale home and buy a share you can afford, paying a subsidised rent on the remaining share of the property (to Metropolitan) and a service charge. 

You can start by purchasing as little as a 25% share of the full market value of your chosen home (but the initial share percentage you buy will be the maximum that you can afford) and you can increase the share you own when you can afford to (known as 'staircasing') - you can do this until you own your home 100% and become outright owner. When you become an outright owner and no longer have to pay rent to Metropolitan.
