What is shared ownership?

Shared Ownership with Anchor is designed to give you flexibility when buying one of our new apartments without having to fund the entire value of the property.

Benefits

  • Enjoy all the benefits of an Anchor property at a more affordable price
  • Purchase a percentage of your property to suit your financial circumstances and retain some flexibility and security for the future
  • You will be required to pay rent on the unpurchased amount
