General Description

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

 

SHARED OWNERSHIP (Advertised price represents 30% share. Full market value £180,000). An attractive, top-floor apartment (building has a lift) which benefits from high ceilings and a balcony. The reception/dining room is dual-aspect with most of one wall taken up by glass. Double doors separate it from the kitchen which gets natural light from both high and mid level windows. There is a good-sized bedroom which also has a near-full-width window along with a window and glazed door on the balcony side. Useful fitted storage has been provided in the spacious entrance hall and there is a simple yet stylish bathroom. Energy-efficiency and environmental-impact ratings are very good, thanks to modern insulation standards, gas central heating and high performance glazing. Both West and East Malling Stations, for services between Ashford International and London Victoria, are within comfortable walking distance. The apartment comes with use of a parking space.

Shared Ownership

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 Homes England outside of London.

IS SHARED OWNERSHIP FOR YOU ?
The GLA and Homes England 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.
