Oakley Property to host shared ownership workshop on Saturday 18th September at Atelier, Lewes

27th August 2021

Our shared ownership experts David Beaken and Beth Furnell from our East Sussex New Homes office, will be hosting a shared ownership workshop at one of Lewes’ most exciting new homes developments - Atelier. Starting from 10am and running until 2pm on September 18th, this workshop is your chance to explore the show home at Atelier and to find out more about the government backed shared ownership scheme and whether you are eligible to take advantage of it.

What will the shared ownership workshop cover?

We understand that buying a new home is a daunting process. Not only this, but the answers you find to your questions online can often be misleading. Our shared ownership workshop has been designed to combat this and provide you with accurate, up-to-date answers to your questions.

On the day, our team of experts will be accompanied by qualified Financial Advisor Josh Sisley from Wooton & Bean. Together the team will cover everything including eligibility requirements, the benefits of buying a new build home, the kind of properties that are available on the scheme and much more. They will also be happy to answer any of your questions, giving you honest answers and advice. This isn’t just a sales workshop, it’s a workshop to help educate you and assist you in making an informed decision.

Where is Atelier and how do I get there?

Atelier is an exclusive collection of 41 apartments located in the heart of Lewes with immediate access to Malling Recreation Field and the River Ouse walk into the historic town centre.

What is shared ownership and who is eligible?

David, Beth & Josh will be able to answer this in detail at our workshop, however, here is a brief overview:

Shared ownership is a government backed scheme that allows you to buy a share of a property and pay rent on the rest.

To be eligible to buy a home through a shared ownership scheme your household must earn £80,000 (£90,000 in London) a year or less and, be unable to afford all the deposit and mortgage payments for a home that meets your needs.

 This scheme is primarily designed for first-time buyers looking to get on the property ladder, however there are a variety of other ways to qualify. For a full list of eligibility requirements please visit https://www.gov.uk/affordable-home-ownership-schemes/shared-ownership-scheme.

If you are still unsure whether you qualify, we highly recommend attending the shared ownership workshop where one of our team will be able to advise you.

Do I need an appointment, or can I just drop in to the workshop?
