Buying a resale property
Buying a property is pretty easy
Once you’ve found the home you wish to
buy you need to contact the relevant housing association who will
talk you through the application process. If your application
is successful they’ll guide you through the purchase
You are also not restricted to buying just the
share that the vendor currently owns. If you can afford to buy more
then you will be able to do so.
‘The legal process is just as
straightforward as buying any other property’
Sarah Jarvis, Sharratts Solicitors
You may also have the opportunity to agree fixtures and fittings
with the vendor. Love the curtains in the bedroom? You might
be able to negotiate buying them as well as the property!
