The Ridings, Poringland Phase 1. 80% Shared equity plots.

Details of homes sold on the Shared Equity* Scheme:
 
This exciting new provision of low cost homes will give people who would not otherwise be able to afford an outright purchase the opportunity to buy a high quality new home.
 
The homes will be built by Norfolk Homes to our usual high standard and will be externally indistinguishable in style.
 
What is a Shared Equity Property?  
A Shared Equity Property is when the buyer purchases a share in the equity of a property and the remaining share of equity is owned by a separate person or organisation. The buyer can purchase the initial share with the aid of a mortgage and upon completion is granted a 125 year lease on the property.  During the course of that lease, the buyer does not have to pay any form of rent on the remaining share of equity, whereas they would, had it been a shared ownership property. 
 
If the buyer wants to sell the property, they are free to do so, but would only receive the market value of the share they own. 
                                                                                                  
The buyer has the opportunity to purchase the remaining share of equity in the property, but only after a period of 5 years of owning the initial share.  This is known as “staircasing”.      
 
How will the homes be sold?
Norfolk Homes will be selling the shared equity lease to the individual buyer and drafts of the leases have already been agreed with Saffron Housing Trust Limited, the owners of the remaining share of equity, in respect of both apartments and houses. 
 
The Company’s Solicitors, Isadore Goldman, will deal with the granting of the shared equity leases to buyers and so will be issuing contract documents in the usual manner.                               
 
On the date of legal completion of the sale of the shared equity lease to the buyer, completion of a transfer of the freehold of the property to Saffron will also take place.  Therefore, whilst Norfolk Homes Ltd will be the landlord under the terms of the leases, Saffron will take over as landlord upon legal completion of the property. Under the terms of the agreement with Saffron, 14 days notice must be served on them of the date it is intended to complete the sale of the shared equity lease. As a result, there will have to be a period of at least 14 days between exchange of contracts and legal completion.

Terms of the shared equity lease
The shared equity leases are based very closely on the Housing and Communities Agency Model Shared Ownership Lease which have been approved by the Council of Mortgage Lenders.  The lease will be for a term of 125 years at a peppercorn* rent.
