**Please note the property is subject to a Section 106 Affordable Housing restriction and as such the asking price is based upon a 30% discount of market value. Any successful purchaser must fulfil the requirements of Section 106 details of which are to be confirmed by Rossendale County Council.**
The general principles for a buyer to be eligible are:
1. Local connection – in the first 12 weeks of marking this is needed for the following wards:
Priority 1: Facit and Shawforth and/or Healey and Whitworth (The areas are self-explanatory)
Priority 2: Greensclough and/or Irwell and/or Stacksteads – (Bacup, Britannia, Stacksteads, Weir)
The priorities above would only apply if there were more than one applicant at the same time.
After 12 weeks Priority 3: The Rest of Rossendale e.g. Rawtenstall, Haslingden, Waterfoot, Helmshore, Water, Crawshawbooth, Edenfield, Rising Bridge, Newchurch. There are many smaller places not listed above – all ward details can be found on: http://mario.lancashire.gov.uk/agsmario/default.aspx
The s.106 agreement gives a local connection by living in the area for 12 months, although we would also consider 3 out of the last 5 years as the Housing Act 1996 does for similar purposes. Close family connection gives a local connection, if a parent, child, sibling or grandparent lives in the relevant are currently and has does for at least 5 years. If your main place of employment is in the relevant area then this gives a local connection. We would look at other long standing connection on a case by case basis.
2. Be in need of the discounted property in order to meet your housing needs – for example the
property would not be affordable at 100% of the open market value.
3. The property must be for the buyers sole or principal home and not to be rented out
4. Current owners may be eligible but must be selling their current home
The new buyer must enter into a Deed of Covenant with the Council which is a cost to the buyer
of £300 and their conveyancer would normally deal with this.
