Thinking of buying a property - SmartShare has thousands of properties to buy or rent across the UK
‘Rent to buy’ is for people who could qualify to buy a shared ownership property but cannot afford the deposit for the mortgage. In these circumstances you can rent the property, normally for up to three years, at approximately 80% of the market rental value. You can then save the 20% discount you are getting to build up a deposit for your mortgage. Once you have enough money put aside you can then purchase the property on a shared ownership basis. Sometimes people call this scheme "try before you buy".
