Do I have to pay all bills in a Shared Ownership property

Although you will only own a share of the property, in addition to your mortgage and rent, you will be required to pay the entire cost of items such as:

  • Council Tax
  • Gas, Electricity, Water & phone bills
  • Repair and maintenance costs for both the inside & outside of the property
  • Buildings and contents insurance
  • In some cases, a contribution to maintenance of shared areas, known as Service Charges
