Fees and Rent

The fee for Co-Own is paid in two stages:

  • Assessment fee: £100 is payable when you apply and we assess your financial position.
  • Property fee: £550 is payable when you upload your property details. For this you will receive a detailed property assessment of the home including condition and value and a significant contribution to your solicitor costs. This is subsidised significantly by Co-Ownership.

The yearly rent is set at 2.5% of the value of the Co-Own share. That’s £25 for every £1,000 we own. This rent is significantly lower than what you would pay if you were renting privately and combined with your mortgage is usually less that a full mortgage.

Rent is reviewed annually. If you would like to read more about how we set and review our rent, please click here.

You can choose to set your Direct Debit up for either the 1st or the 10th of the month.  Your rent will also be adjusted for any changes at the annual review each April.

Rental Payments

The amount of rent you pay will depend on the value of your home and your share of it. Rent is reviewed annually and increases in line with inflation. It is currently set at 2.5% of the value of the Co-Ownership share of your home e.g. if your home is valued at £120,000 and you own 50% the annual rent is £1,500 or £125 per month.

  • Rent is charged from the day of completion in the month that you join Co-Own.
  • If there is ground rent due on your home we will add this into your rent. Please be aware that you should pay any management company or service charges directly to them.
  • Rents are reviewed annually and linked to inflation. If your rent is going to change we will let you know this in advance.
  • Rent is paid via Direct Debit.
