Shared Ownership for the over 55's - How does it work?
Whether you are retired, planning for your future or downsizing, where you live and quality of life is important. Oxlip House provides you with the privacy of your own apartment but with the sense of community.
You buy a share in your home (50% or 75%) with the remaining share owned by bpha. There is no rent to pay on a 75% purchase. This property has a 75% share available to purchase.
In the future, you can simply sell your share for its value at the time of sale (current market valuation required).
To qualify for the property, applicants will be required to have a sale agreed on their current property (if applicable) and have to be approved by Help to Buy East and South East, pass the necessary checks, and be over the age of 55.
The association will carry out an affordability assessment on any interested applicants and this will also be subject to care assessment.
Please note, applicants individual care needs will be assessed once an application has been made, however any potential purchaser will be required to pay for tailored care, with the amount confirmed by the care provider, in addition to the charges stated above.
