Commenting on the return of shared ownership Charlotte Grimshaw, Head of Intermediary Relations, said: “It’s great to be back in the shared ownership market once again. Our previous range was very popular and, having implemented other crucial changes to our products and lending criteria, we have been committed to bringing these products back into our range to make buying a home more accessible.

“In particular, I’m excited about our 5-year fixed rate product, which should provide borrowers with comfort and security over their mortgage repayments, offering stability over a longer time period. Additionally, as the affordability assessment for this 5-year fixed rate product is calculated on product pay rate only, rather than applying a stress scenario, this will further help those looking to borrow”.
