Shared Ownership

Buying or selling a Shared Ownership property can be a complicated and exhausting transaction. Most Housing Associations will recommend a solicitor that specialises with Shared Ownership and is familiar with the process. Norman H.Barnett is on the panel of most Housing Association’s recommended solicitors and our lawyers have been highly recommended by our existing clients to the Housing Associations for the excellent work and service we provide. We aim to continue that level of service and strive to achieve our clients’ needs.

We specialise in all aspects of Shared Ownership transactions and our team of lawyers are a specialist in the field, particularly, Imran Sher, who has been in the Shared Ownership department for over 10 years.

We pride in helping our clients buying their first home, and later down the years, assisting them in purchasing additional shares, selling their property and helping them buy their new homes on the open market.

We treat each client to their own and explain the mechanism of the shared ownership transaction which includes the complicated long lease in detail.
