Discount for Sale

When developers build shiny new homes the local authorities suggest some are sold at a 25%-50% discount. This is to ensure there is always a supply of affordable homes for sale for people struggling to make their move onto the property ladder.

If you choose to sell the property the original discount is passed on to the next person. For example, if you bought the property with a 25% discount you can only sell the property at 75% of the market value. You must inform the Housing Association you bought the property from before you sell.
