For those few people with disability who have access to significant capital, home ownership may be an option. This will come in two forms:
Sole ownership – a person or their family are the sole owners of a property and live alone or have renters who live with them at the property.
Shared equity – two or more people/entities own a share of a property. This can take the form of a unit trust. Unit trusts are legal arrangements set out to determine who owns what component of a given property, and sets out governance for how the property is to be treated now and in the future. See more about unit trusts here.
For those with complex support needs who are SDA Eligible, The Summer Foundation has produced a resource on how to end up owning your own SDA home.
