Affording a new home with Morris Shared Equity

Affording a new home with Morris Shared Equity

Here you'll find some useful information to help you understand how our own Shared Equity scheme works, so you can start the journey towards your dream home.

How does Shared Equity work?

The process in a nutshell:

    You’ll need a 5% deposit of the value of the home you wish to buy.

    We will lend you up to 20% the value of your chosen home in the form of an equity loan. This loan is interest-free for five years and can be repaid over time, or if you decide to sell your home in the future.

    You then take out a mortgage on the remaining 75% of the value of the property, helping to reduce your monthly mortgage payments.

    At the start of the sixth year you’ll be charged a fee of 1.75% of the loan value, and this will then increase every year by the retail price index plus 1%.

    What’s the criteria?

    Must be the only home you own

    You must not sub-let or rent out the home after purchase

    Shared Equity is only available on specific plots
