Shared ownership at Quantock House

At Platinum Skies Taunton we offer affordable and flexible purchase options through our government approved shared ownership scheme. With a Platinum Skies property, you purchase a share – typically 50% of the property – then pay the remaining balance in rent.

Along with a low service charge for upkeep and maintenance, the rent can be paid from your pension or by investing any spare capital from the sale of your current home.
