General Description

A Fantastic Opportunity to Purchase a Two Bedroom House on a Shared Ownership (Part Buy/Part Rent) Basis


SHARED OWNERSHIP (Advertised price represents 25% share. Full market value £120,000). This two-bedroom, semi-detached house is part of a recently-built Keepmoat Homes development on the rural outskirts of Skelmersdale. The property features a spacious kitchen that leads through to the reception room and from there double doors open onto the south-facing rear garden. Upstairs there is an attractive bathroom and the bedrooms, both of which are good-sized doubles. Modern insulation standards, gas central heating and high performance glazing have resulted in a very good energy-efficiency rating. There are well-thought-of primary schools in the local area and the town centre can be reached on foot, via bus or by brief cycle ride. The house comes with driveway parking for two cars and the nearby roads provide easy access to the M58 which, in turn, connects to the M6. The railway station at Parbold, for services between Southport and Manchester Oxford Road, is also within easy reach.

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.

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.
