CONDITIONS OF PURCHASE
The purchase price for this property is £43,750 in return for a 25% share of the leasehold title to this property. This property is being sold under a Shared Ownership Scheme operated by Together Homes. Together Homes is part of Together Housing Group, a leading provider of homes across the North of England. They are a not-for-profit organisation; any money they make from the sale of their homes is reinvested in building more homes and servicing their customers. Help to Buy Shared Ownership is a way to start out on the property ladder if you can’t quite afford the mortgage on 100% of a home. Put simply, you part buy, part rent your home. You purchase a share, usually between 25% and 75%. You then pay a proportionate rent to Together Homes for the share you don’t own. Based on 25% ownership, the current rent is £284.19 per calendar month. In addition, there is a monthly service charge of £40.97 towards the maintenance of communal areas (e.g. residents’ car park).
You can buy greater shares in your home as and when you can afford to. This process is called ‘staircasing’. In many cases, you can eventually own 100% of your home outright, at which point you will pay only your mortgage, but no rent (although the service charge still applies). This property can only be sold to a buyer/household that meet the strict qualifying/eligibility criteria. Prospective buyers will only be authorised to proceed with the purchase after successfully passing the qualifying criteria and they must then complete an application via Help To Buy (https://www.helptobuyagent1.org.uk/apply/). This property must always be the owner’s principle or only home, and you may not sublet all or part of it.,
The Homes England criteria for Help to Buy Shared Ownership is as follows:
•You must be at least 18 Years old for this property.
•You should be a British citizen or have indefinite leave to remain.
•You need to have access to or be able to raise approximately £2,500 to cover the cost of buying a home.
•Your annual household income cannot exceed £80,000 per year.
•You should generally be a first-time buyer. If you do already own a property, you must be in the process of selling it.
•The Shared Ownership home you’re looking to buy must be your only home and you must not sublet it.
•You should not be able to afford to buy a home suitable for your housing needs on the open market.
•You must provide proof that you are not in mortgage or rent arrears.
•You must demonstrate that you have good credit history and can afford the regular payments and costs involved in buying a home.

The 25% share of this property is held as a Leasehold interest in the property, not Freehold, with a 125-year lease commencing 1st January 2019. There is no ground rent but there is a monthly service charge which is currently £40.97 and which contributes towards the maintenance of communal areas (e.g. residents’ car park). Because the other 75% share is owned by Together Homes, you pay them a proportionate monthly rent, which is currently £284.19 per calendar month.
The tenure of this property is Freehold. We believe the house to be of cavity wall construction, to be connected to mains gas, electricity, water, and drainage, and to be connected to landline telephone and Internet broadband.
Many property purchases are subject to Stamp Duty Land Tax, and there have been significant changes in recent years to the rules governing stamp duty and the amounts levied. HM Revenue & Customs have an online calculator to assist you in working out what stamp duty you may have to pay in relation to your purchase (https://www.gov.uk/stamp-duty-land-tax) but please always check with your solicitor.
