Shared Ownership

Also known as (OPSO)

Over 55s shared ownership with emh

How Does It Work?

If you are aged 55 or over, the Older Persons Shared Ownership (OPSO) scheme in England could help you buy a home that’s for sale on a shared ownership basis (part-rent/part-buy). You could buy a share of your home (up to 75% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share.

It works in the same way as the general shared ownership scheme, but you can only buy up to 75% of your home. Once you own 75% you won’t have to pay rent on the remaining share.
