Just a short walk away from the development is The Kings Arms, a traditional 16th century pub serving freshly cooked food and drinks to the people of Frating. A walk around the surrounding countryside followed by a drink here would make for a lovely evening in this charming village.

What is Shared Ownership? Shared ownership could be your step on to the property ladder. This home ownership scheme allows you to purchase a share in your home and rent the remaining unowned share. Over time you can buy more shares in your home until you own the full 100%.

How does Shared Ownership Work? You buy an initial share of between 40% and 75% of the property's full value and pay a subsidised rent on the remaining share you don't own. You may purchase further shares up to 100% of the full property value, as your circumstances change, although there is no obligation

to do so. You will be asked to speak with a Financial Advisor to assess what share you can buy, ensuring this is both affordable and sustainable, based on your circumstances.

Shared ownership can be cheaper than renting a property privately as the mortgage cost and subsidised rent usually add up to less than the equivalent rental payments to a landlord.
