Accessing affordable housing

Selling your discounted market sale home

You may sell the property at any time but you must notify us in writing of your intention to sell your affordable home, before putting it on the market; please email The property must be sold with the same discount percentage that you received when purchasing the property.

You will need to obtain and provide us with three written valuations for the full open market value of the property from different reputable local estate agents. The valuations should be scanned/photographed and emailed to the affordable housing team. We calculate the sales value by taking the average of these three valuations and applying the purchase discount. This is then the maximum sales value which you can sell at through your chosen estate agency.

The estate agents also need to provide information on how they intend to market your property, together with how they monitor sales progress and the actions taken if a property does not sell as anticipated. As well as advertising your property through your chosen estate agents, we will also include it on these webpages and can send details to our affordable housing mailing list.

Prospective buyers must be assessed by us to determine if they are eligible for affordable housing and will need to complete our form.

Please note: no offers should be taken on the property until the potential purchaser has been assessed by the affordable housing team. Please ask to see their eligibility letter or contact the affordable housing team for authorisation to proceed.
