It is assumed that a prospective purchaser by selling their own property will have a capital sum to invest, not exceeding twice the value of the property to help cover the cost of future expenses which include a service charge, details of which are available. Potential buyers will be required to have an interview with the Scheme Manager to assess suitability and must have either sold their property or have a buyer in place and must not have been diagnosed with Dementia or Alzheimers and must be able to live independently without carers. They will also have to have medical report from a doctor (at their cost) and a financial check made by Home Group. Upon ownership of the property the Lease will revert back to 99 years and the current service charge is approximately £395.28 per quarter. There are other charges which the Scheme Manager will go through with any potential buyer. Also the price is set at £101,500 being the 70% share of the full market price and hence offers will not be accepted other than the asking price.
