House Purchase Grant
The new House Purchase Grant budget of £2.9 million is available for the 2017/18 financial year.
If you are a Wandsworth council tenant with more than two years tenancy, you may be eligible for a grant of up to £80,000 (subject to eligibility criteria) to vacate your council property and to use towards buying your own home on the open market within the UK or anywhere else in the world or to use towards purchasing a share of a shared ownership property (part rent part buy) within the UK.
Alternatively, the grant can also be used towards adapting a family members' home within the UK, for example, an annexe or a loft conversion, to accommodate you.
Due to unprecedented amount of early interest in this scheme, the entire budget has almost been allocated.
Please contact us in the first instance to find out if there is still available funding before you apply or to let us know that you want to be added onto our waiting list.
Funding will not be allocated until you have contacted the team and they have confirmed that you are able to place an offer on a property.
