Local area connection

You'll notice that on many of our property listings we say that a local connection to the area is required.

This is because the homes we have for sale in these areas have been built specifically to help meet the needs of local people who can't afford to get on the housing ladder any other way. 

The local area connection criteria varies between developments, but generally it's based on: 

  • Being a resident, or an employee within the area for a number of years, usually between two and five.
  • Have a family connection, for example parent, grandparent, child, grandchild or adult sibling - who have lived in the area for at last three years.
