In today's show, Richard sat down with Jimmy Acton from Property Booking.

Property Booking is the UK's leading shared ownership portal.

FOR FULL EPISODE AND RESOURCES VISIT OUR WEBSITE

Shared Ownership, also known by some as 'part buy / part rent', is a solution to getting on the property ladder that is for most people totally unknown, and for some people misunderstood.

Jimmy's chat with Richard addresses both of those challenges by very clearly and simply describing every part of the solution that he wants to see become one of the standard mainstream ways enabling people to get on the property ladder.

Fully backed by the Government, Shared Ownership is a solution that can cater for the needs of customers looking to find their home without the financial constraints of a large mortgage and deposit, and also without the non-owner status of a renting tenant.

It also addresses many of the issues that Housing Associations and Property Developers have with unused and empty stock.

And Property Booking's online portal provides the space for those customers to search for such properties, and for those associations and developers to present such properties...
