Wiltshire Council Shared Ownership
Advertising and allocating the houses
In addition to other forms of advertising, new homes will be advertised (for sale at market value) via Homes4Wiltshire and the Shared Ownership properties page; this will take place approximately a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks before the homes are ready to be occupied.
Homes4Wiltshire is a choice-based lettings scheme for people in housing need seeking affordable accommodation operated by Wiltshire Council. The homes will be advertised until they have been successfully sold to applicants, with shortlists being checked twice weekly. Eligible bids will be referred for affordability assessment. On receiving multiple eligible bids which pass the affordability assessment, the selling of the houses will be in accordance with Wiltshire Council's Allocation Policy, which determines the ranking of each bid by parish connection, band and finally the date that an applicant is placed in the particular band. Full details of the Allocation Policy are available on the Homes4Wiltshire website.
