Local residents interested in getting a first foot on the property ladder with Shared Ownership can find out more about the scheme from Curo’s sales team – the Shared Ownership experts will be hosting a free drop in event on Saturday 17 November from 10am until 4pm at Ambition Lawrence Weston Youth Centre.
Curo is hoping to build 185 new homes in Lawrence Weston, at Corbet Close and Henacre Road. More than half of these – 95 homes – will be affordable housing, including 28 homes for Shared Ownership.
Paula Beel, Affordable Sales Manager at Curo, says: “Shared Ownership homes are allocated on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis and we want to make sure that local residents in Lawrence Weston are prepared to take advantage of the future opportunities in their area.
“Come along to find out if you qualify for Shared Ownership and how to access this government-backed scheme. Our friendly team will be on hand to offer advice and answer any questions you may have.”
Shared Ownership enables first time buyers – and those who used to own a home but can no longer afford one – to purchase a share of a property, significantly reducing mortgage requirements and the deposit amount. The buyer then pays rent on the remaining share and has the option of increasing their own share over time until they reach 100% ownership and no longer need to pay rent.
For further details about the event call Ambition Lawrence Weston on 0117 9235112.
