What is SO Resi Plus?

If you choose buy more shares with SO Resi Plus, you have all the benefits of the traditional way of owning more equity in your shared ownership home with much more flexibility. 

• No solicitor’s fees
• No valuation fees

So how does it work?

SO Resi Plus gives you the option of buying an extra 1% of your home each year at a price that is set from day one, even if property prices go up.

• In the first year it will cost 1% of your home’s full value
• Then the amount you pay will go up by 3% a year

We’ll get in touch each year to confirm the price and ask whether you want to go ahead. SO Resi Plus lasts for 15 years, so you can buy up to an extra 15% of your home this way.
