Q: What is A landspeed shared purchase home? An affordable home designed to help you to get on to the property ownership ladder. With a Landspeed home in Hawkinge you will own a long leasehold interest in the property, but pay no more than 75% of the open market value. The balancing share will be legally secured by Landspeed but, unlike other shared equity/ownership schemes, we do not charge rent or interest on this share and you are under no obligation whatsoever to pay for this share or buy it at any time in the future. Your purchase can be funded by a mortgage and - with no rent charged on the balancing share - this means that you only have to meet the cost of your mortgage, service charges and other standard home costs.

Q: Can anyone buy A landspeed property? No. You must be unable to buy an equivalent property on the open market and have a local connection to the area. Equally important, you must be able to afford the cost of buying a new Landspeed home; principally qualifying for a mortgage and having the necessary deposit.

Q: How will I know whether I qualify for A landspeed home? Contact martin&co on and we will check that you satisfy the qualifying criteria.

Q: Can I rent the property out? In general the answer is no, although if you encounter particular circumstances that will leave the property empty (a short term employment relocation for example) then we will be happy to discuss this with you, subject also to your mortgage provider's approval.

Q: What about when I want to sell? You can sell at any time but you must notify us in writing. There is then a set period within which we seek a buyer who qualifies in the same manner in which you yourself did. You will benefit from any increase in the value of your share of the property at that point in time, although you should be aware that you will also be affected by any fall in values. You will be required to pay for an independent valuation and any other costs associated with the sale of your home.

Whilst we endeavour to make our sales details accurate and reliable, if there is any point which is of particular importance to you, please contact the office and we will be pleased to check the information. Do so, particularly if contemplating travelling some distance to view the property.

All measurements have been taken using a sonic / laser tape measure and therefore, may be subject to a small margin of error. All Measurements are Approximate. The mention of any appliances and/or services within these Sales Particulars does not imply they are in full and efficient working order.

Our team of highly qualified Financial Consultants can provide you with up to the minute information on many of the rates available. To arrange an appointment, telephone this office. Your home is at risk if you do not keep up repayments on A mortgage or other loans secured on it. Full written quotation available on request. A suitable life policy may be required. Loans subject to status. Minimum age 18.
