Renting vs Buying your own home: You told us what really worries you.

We asked what you did not like about living in rented accommodation and buying your own home and you said:

  • Lack of security – as your tenancy nears the end of its term, do you worry that your landlord may evict you? Or increase your rent?

  • “Making a house into a home” is difficult when renting: that feeling that the landlord can enter your property almost at will.

  • Dealing with arrogant and insensitive estate agents.

  • House sellers arguing over price.

  • Finding a solicitors and dealing with all that legal-speak.

  • Arranging the many things that need to be done.

  • It’s lonely with no one “on your side”.

We listened, we heard you and we agree.

Joint Equity will be your partner, not your landlord.

  • You are the co-owner of the property. You have the legal right to stay in your home for as long as you desire.

  • All costs are known to you beforehand

  • Joint Equity offers a full negotiation service.
    There is no need for you to talk to an estate-agent or even the house seller should you not wish to. And of course, if we can negotiate a lower purchase price we both share in the gain!

    All are highly experienced in the Joint Equity purchase process.
