Description: Phase 2 Crookfield is the second stage of this popular development in Staveley. Built by Russell Armer Homes on behalf of Castles & Coasts. Phase 1 comprised of 18 houses built for rent in the local market in 2015 and it has become a popular community. Phase 2 consists of 13 homes, including 4 properties for rent through Castles & Coasts, 2 shared ownership properties, 4 rent to buy properties and 3 outright sales. Each house has the benefit of a new build guarantee to give peace of mind to the new owner. All properties are subject to occupancy restriction and other eligibility criteria and will create a fantastic place to live.
Shared Ownership is for those who cannot afford the mortgage on 100% of a home and offers the chance to buy a share in a home (between 25% and 75% of the home’s value) and pay rent on the remaining share (calculated at 2.75% of the unsold equity). Later on, the shared owner can buy bigger shares when they can afford to do so, this is a process referred to as ‘staircasing’ the exact terms of which are included in the lease. For the shared ownership properties, where an applicant does not intend to raise a mortgage to make the purchase, they must be able to demonstrate that they have the means to afford and sustain home ownership in the longer term.
The provider then grants a leasehold interest to the shared owner. The shared owner occupies the entire dwelling, and pays a rent to the provider for the share of the property still owned by the provider.
You could buy a home through Help to Buy: Shared Ownership in England if:
– your household earns £80,000 a year or less.
Source: Capital Funding Guide & Help to Buy Website Sept 2019
– you are a first-time buyer, you used to own a home but can’t afford to buy one now or are an existing shared owner looking to move.
Shared Ownership properties are always Leasehold. The shared owner is responsible for all repairs to their home even if they purchase a minimum share.
Only military personnel will be given priority over other groups through government funded shared ownership schemes.
The shared owner’s initial share of the property must be a minimum of 25% and a maximum of 75% at Crookfield, the maximum limit of staircasing is set at 80%.
The shared owner raises the funds to purchase their share in the normal manner. For example through some savings, possibly some family assistance, but primarily by taking out a mortgage from a bank or building society. Note it is not an absolute requirement that a purchaser must fund the acquisition with a mortgage, but it is the usual route to purchase.
Offering good sized living room, breakfast kitchen with separate WC on the ground floor and 3 bedrooms and bathroom on the first. Outside is a small garden to the front, fenced rear garden and parking at the side for 2 cars.
The property has gas fired central heating and uPVC double glazed windows.
