General Description

A Fantastic Opportunity to Purchase a Two Bedroom Flat, on a Shared Ownership (Part Buy/Part Rent) Basis, through Clarion Housing


SHARED OWNERSHIP (Advertised price represents 25% share. Full market value £185,000). An immaculately-presented flat on the top (second) floor of a modern development just over a mile to the west of Ashford town centre. The main room, though open plan, has clearly defined kitchen/dining and living room areas. There is a balcony, a stylish monochrome bathroom, an entrance hall with storage space and two good-sized bedrooms (one currently used as a study/second reception). Energy-efficiency and environmental-impact ratings are very good, thanks to well insulated walls, high performance glazing, gas central heating and roof-mounted solar panels. The flat comes with a parking space.

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.

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.
