Thank you for setting this up. It’s very important to ensure people know what they are signing up for with, quite frankly, what I’d call a total scam! Information is scarce, or just wrong! Many people don’t understand what’s in their leases and HAs take advantage of that too. I was lucky to escape but I know there are many more struggling. Thank you for all your work to ensure others don’t get caught out.

This a brilliant idea.we all should be supporting shared ownership's with short leases and other problems to get answers from greedy freeholders. Going to keep on sharing. Thank you and the best of luck.

Great idea for the website, HAs are not the victim, they are perpetrators who need to be held to account. And new buyers need to know shared ownership is an awful idea that has made the housing crisis in this country this much worse.

I absolutely support this great initiative as a much needed resource for anyone considering entering into the world of shared ownership. The sales office only sell you a glossy brochure and dream of home ownership at “affordable” levels. They don’t tell you it’s an assured tenancy and that you are responsible to pay 100% of your landlords repairs despite only having a 25% share. If they did, I wonder how many would take out a mortgage to remain an assured tenant. Thank you for your great work highlighting the things that should be made clear and transparent at point of sale enabling informed decisions.

This is the most important crowd funder project I've seen for quite a while, and I'm very happy to support it. Good luck!
