Tighean Innse Gall has two Re-sale properties available, under the New Supply Shared Equity Scheme.
Under this scheme the applicant will be eligible to purchase between 60% and 80% of the property depending upon their circumstances.
You must meet the following criteria to qualify:-
• First time buyer (although consideration will be given to owner occupiers whose current accommodation is overcrowded and cannot be extended or whose circumstances have changed
eg marital breakdown).
• Resident in the Western Isles and either living in social rented housing or have been on the waiting list for six months prior to application. If you’re not already on the list you can contact HHP and have yourself added at this stage and this will ensure that at the time of the applications you will meet this criteria.
• Be employed or have received a formal offer of employment or have been recently employed in the local area where you want to set up home.
• The applicant receives a low income and so cannot afford to buy a property in the area through the open market.
You should be able to provide 3 mortgage quotes along with the completed application form.
