Response to Private Shared Ownership consultation

The BSA and its members are supportive of growing the market in private shared ownership. In doing so, consumer protection must be kept at the forefront of any proposals and we argue for private shared ownership providers to be subject to the same duties as housing associations, whether through a strengthened lease or lighter-touch regulation.

We also make a number of proposals for improving the wider shared ownership market. You can read the full response here.
