Affordable Social Housing

On most days we are answering your property questions for free on our forum.

Here's one of the questions we've answered, but visit our property forum for the full question and answer:-

Q - I really want to buy a home but can't afford one in my area, I have heard that some affordable homes might be built locally, can I buy one of these?

A - It is really hard when you want to buy a home in the area you know and love but prices are too high. This isn't a new thing though, many people can't afford to buy initially where they grew up, particularly if it's in London or the South East.

To help people that want to move back or stay in the area they grew up in, affordable homes are given planning permission and may be built on land that isn't typically available to all developers, or for all types of homes.

Usually affordable homes in an area are for key workers who work locally (eg teachers/police) or for people that grew up there.
