Equity Share

EquityShare calculator

You need a minimum deposit of around 6.5% (9% for properties of £250K and above). If you leave Deposit blank, the calculator will assume you have 10%.


What size deposit?

Q. What is the minimum deposit I need in order to buy a house or flat under the EquityShare scheme?
