A Fantastic Opportunity to Purchase a One Bedroom Flat, on Shared Ownership by Clarion Housing
WHAT IS SHARED OWNERSHIP ?
Shared Ownership is a housing scheme designed to help homebuyers who are unable to afford the cost of buying a property outright on the open market. Properties may be sold off-plan or new build direct from housing associations, or pre-owned from existing shared owners. The rules and terms of the scheme are set by the Greater London Authority (GLA) in London and the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) outside of London.
IS SHARED OWNERSHIP FOR YOU ?
The GLA and HCA set the eligibility criteria for Shared Ownership, but broadly speaking you must:
Not own another property in the UK or any other country.
Have a household income that falls below £90,000 (£80,000 threshold outside the M25). Every property will have a minimum income level too, determined by its’ value, rent and service charge costs. In most cases you will need to meet or exceed the given minimum income.
Have access to a minimum deposit of 10% of the share being purchased (a minimum deposit of 5% of the share being purchased may be acceptable depending on individual financial status).
Be in full time permanent employment.
Be a British, EU or EEA Citizen or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
Have a good credit history.

F – General Needs
General needs housing does not meet any of the above criteria. Properties in this category will have more than four steps or a ramp access that is steeper than 1:10 to access the property front door. These properties should be marketed with the number of steps to access the property as this will provide an additional factor for helping people choosing what to bid for.
