We still have properties available to both buy and rent, and are looking for new members to join our growing community.
5 x 1 bedroom apartments are available for Shared Ownership leasehold purchase – ready for occupation from Spring 2023. Applicants will need to check their eligibility with the Government‘s Help to Buy Scheme.
These flats can be purchased leasehold at between 25% and 75% of the Open Market Value, which is currently indicated to be £175,000. You then pay a monthly rent on the balance. The lowest capital share of the flat you can buy is 25% (£43,750) and the highest is 75% ( £131,250).
If your financial resources allow at a later date, you can increase your capital share – and reduce your rent – by ‘stair casing’ that share up to a maximum of 80%.
1 x 2 bedroom houses and 2 x 3 bedroom houses available for SOCIAL RENT– you need to register on the Dorset Housing Register to apply for any of these houses, which will be ready for occupation in autumn/winter 2022.
