Our new film 'My First Christmas' tells the story of how Lisa and Sian found and bought their first homes in 2015 using Shared Ownership

We met up with Lisa from Newbury and Sian from Chippenham to find out how they got on the property ladder in 2015 using Shared Ownership.

Lisa wasn't initially looking to buy a property but came across a listing on Zoopla for her one bedroom apartment situated in a converted older building near Newbury town centre. Only requiring a 5% deposit on Shared Ownership made the prospect of buying more realistic so Lisa made enquiries with Sovereign Living and within months she was moving into her very own home, in time for Christmas.

Sian had previously privately rented for 18 months and wanted to buy a home for herself and her daughter to settle into. After her friend bought a house nearby using Shared Ownership Sian had a look for herself and found a beautiful 3 bed house in Chippenham available from Greensquare Group. She has now fully decorated her home to her own tastes and is ready for Christmas.
