Discounted Sale Properties

How does it work?

These properties on new-build developments are sold with a discount, which is normally between 20%-50% of the market value. You cannot buy further shares in the property.

If you owned 80% equity in the property, you would sell the property at 80% of the full market value at the time of sale. 

There are usually Local Connection restrictions on these types of properties, to ensure that they are sold to people within the local community.
