Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Coownership

Buying your own home is a huge financial commitment. It's important that you do your research and fully understand your options before you commit to anything. If you can't afford to pay the full purchase cost of a property you might be able to part buy and part rent the property with the help of Co-ownership Housing Association.

Buying a home is stressful. You'll need a trusted solicitor to help and you will have to pay lots of fees and charges.

There are a few different schemes that may be of assistance if you are planning to buy a home in the near future. These include shared ownership schemes, where you part buy and part rent, a rent to buy scheme that will pay you a rebate on some of the rent you’ve paid and government backed savings schemes which will give you a bonus to add to your deposit.

Shared ownership means you buy a part of a property and someone else buys the rest. You then pay rent on the part of the property you don't own. 

Northern Ireland has two shared ownership schemes

  • Co-ownership Housing, and
  • FairShare
