Frequently asked questions

For shared ownership properties, the rent charge covers the remaining share of the property that Johnnie Johnson Housing owns. Some shared ownership properties may include a service charge or annual charge that covers communal gardening and maintenance. However, the homeowner is usually responsible for all repairs to their individual property; the service charge covers only communal areas.

A minimum age restriction may apply for some shared ownership properties. You can check the property details for more information on who can apply and you will be advised of any restrictions on application.

At Johnnie Johnson Housing we have a clear Equality and Diversity policy. We welcome applications from anyone regardless of age, gender, religious beliefs, ethnic or national origin, sexual orientation, marital status, physical characteristics or disability.
