Guidance Notes for Purchaser Eligibility.
Shared ownership is aimed at people who otherwise would be unable to afford to purchase a home suitable for their current housing needs.
The property lease will contain a requirement that the leaseholder meets a minimum age requirement, and may also contain a requirement for additional occupiers to also meet the same age requirement. The lease may also contain a requirement for the leaseholder to live an independent lifestyle.
To qualify for older persons shared ownership our requirements are that a buyer must meet the following criteria :-
1) any requirements within the lease
2) demonstrate a need for affordable home ownership and be able to sustain ongoing housing costs
3) if applicable, show a commitment that their existing home is being sold or will be sold.
1) Lease Requirements
The individual property lease will state the age requirement for the leaseholder of a property. When a lease states purchasers must be ‘elderly’ or ‘retired’ this will be interpreted as aged 55.
The lease will also confirm whether the age requirement relates to the age of the purchaser / purchasers, or those occupying the property.
If joint applicants wish to purchase property, and only one applicant meets the age requirement within the lease, the applicant who meets the age requirement must be the sole leaseholder. Under this scenario, if the lease states that family and dependants (other occupiers) must be of a certain age, the application will be declined.
Some leases contain a requirement that the applicants are able to live an independent lifestyle.
2) Demonstrate a requirement for affordable home ownership
Applicants with sufficient equity to be able to purchase a suitable home outright on the open market may not be assessed as eligible. It is expected that applicants will use the majority of their capital to fund the purchase of a property.
To meet these terms we expect that an applicant will use at least 60% of their savings and capital to fund the purchase of the property and must have a form of income, savings or capital to be able to sustain ongoing housing costs.
It is recognised that this calculation will not be appropriate in some cases, for instance where there are relatively low property values or on low equity percentages being sold. In these cases we will look at the amount of capital which an applicant will retain following the purchase.
We have a set of guidelines to assist us to assess financial eligibility and will assess the application on a case by case basis. Applicants with a high level of capital are unlikely to be assessed as eligible. We recognise that some applicants may need to retain a higher level of savings or investments to provide on-going income to cover living and care costs.
3) Sale of existing home
Places for People will expect applicants who are currently homeowners to sell their existing property in order to fund the purchase of the shared ownership property.
If however an applicant requests that the purchase proceeds ahead of the sale of their current home, and the Officer assessing the case (whose decision will be final), is prepared to consider this, the applicant will be required to demonstrate their commitment to sell.
Places for People will assess applications on a case by case basis and no assumptions should be made regarding eligibility until the application has been formally approved.
