These figures are an illustrated costing only and for exact costings you should speak to an independent financial advisor. Figures above are based on a 25 year repayment mortgage and a Home reach lease with an initial rent of1.5% on the unpurchased property value increasing by RPI+ 0.5% each year and exclude any lease management fee. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up with payments on your mortgage or shared ownership lease. Additional service charges may be payable on properties with communal facilities or services. You will also need to consider the responsibilities and associated costs involved with owning a home (such as insurance and maintenance)Smaller deposit requirements and lower monthly payments make it easier to buy a home. Decide on how much to buy, with shares up to 40% to be able to purchase a share with either cash or savings or by taking out a mortgage. If taking out a mortgage to finance the Home Reach share, then typically at least 5% deposit is needed. The larger the deposit the lower the mortgage payments.
