This report explores the barriers, challenges and policy solutions across the product, brand, and investor and lender confidence to make shared ownership a mainstream tenure and an option for many more people. We have analysed a wealth of data, spoken to current and possible future customers and sought the views of key national stakeholders.

Achieving this step change will require a concerted effort from housing associations, private developers, local and central government, lenders, investors and regulators. Creating a more streamlined, consistent and simplified product with increased flexibility for consumers will enable more people to access affordable home ownership.
