THIS EXPRESSION OF INTEREST SURVEY IS OPEN FROM MONDAY 20th NOVEMBER to 31st DECEMBER 2023
Waterford City and County Council is actively considering the development of an affordable housing scheme at Ardmore, Co. Waterford. Initially, we are assessing the viability of, and the need for, a scheme in this area.
For first time buyers who are currently unable to get a mortgage for a new house in the Ardmore area, an affordable housing scheme will provide for:
- The purchase of a home using the income capacity of the purchaser(s) and the maximum mortgage available to them.
- The Council to take an equity stake in the home to cover the shortfall in the price to a maximum of 40% and a minimum of 5% which can be redeemed at any stage in the future or may be left in place until a future sale of the property.
While the final purchase price of the affordable housing has yet to be determined, the scheme would be targeted at those who cannot access social housing supports and cannot afford to purchase a property on the private market. If you consider that you may qualify and are interested in declaring an interest provisionally at this point, you are invited to complete this Expression of Interest Online Survey, subject to the important information below and your acceptance of the terms outlined in it.
