YouOwn in a nutshell

We call it co-ownership. It’s an easy and exciting option for first home buyers where we partner with you to purchase a home. It gets you a foot on the property ladder and the confidence of your own roof over your head, without the stresses of renting or anxiety as house prices continue to rise.

How does YouOwn work?

It’s simple. You buy a portion of the property you can afford now, and we help with the rest. You pay a charge on our portion and after five years, you can buy our share when you are able to. With our help it really is possible to step into your own home today and create the future of your dreams.
