These couples have been able to share Valentine’s Day together thanks to shared ownership!
PHM are feeling the love and want to show off some couples’ shared ownership successes – we hope you enjoy this trio of love stories as the perfect tonic to warm the cockles of your heart in what is proving to be a cold February.
Let’s check in on last year’s lovebirds – On Valentine’s Day last year, Olivia Tinker and Thomas Odlum went to visit a two-bedroom shared ownership apartment at Warehouse, a Network Living development in Streatham. They loved it so much that they put down a holding fee the same day. Brilliantly, Network Living lowered the minimum share from 50% to 40%, after reservations from Thomas’ mortgage company about his self-employment. Happy house-buying-anniversary Olivia and Thomas! Read our blog post about them here.
Stuart and Melanie Wynne were living in a two-bed property in Dee Park in Reading when baby Mia arrived. Naturally they moved into a bigger house… but on the same development! We are so happy that the Wynnes loved Dee Park so much that they chose to continue living there, raising their family! You can find out more details here.
Of course, love spans all ages. In her retirement, Christine Winch wanted to be able to live closer to her family, but not have to worry about a new mortgage. Christine and her partner Michael Frances were able to achieve this goal through shared ownership, paying £160,125 for a 75% share of a two-bedroom apartment at Russell Square, a Thames Valley Housing development.
