Help to own your own home

Published: Thursday 5th October 17

Get information and advice on how you can own your first home at the Affordable Housing Open Day.

Open the Door 2017 is a completely free event organised by the council's Home Ownership Team for first time buyers. You must live or work in Wandsworth and have a maximum household income of £90,000.

You will be able to meet with the council’s Home Ownership Team which manages a list of eligible Wandsworth buyers. Many of the new affordable homes being built in Wandsworth can be purchased on shared ownership terms by local buyers who live or work in the borough but who must be registered on the Home Ownership Team’s list.

Open the Door also offers advice to council tenants wishing to explore their housing options, including information on House Purchase Grants, Right to Buy and Right to Part Buy. Wandsworth's Housing Lettings team will also be available to answer enquiries from council tenants who wish to transfer into another more suitable property.

Local housing providers and Independent financial and legal advisors will be on hand to give personal advice on mortgages and the buying process.

When: October 19,  2pm-8pm

Where: Wandsworth Civic Suite, Wandsworth High Street, SW18 2PU

Cost: Free
