Hi All

Has anyone ever heard of a reduction in claw back figure , for works carried out on a affordable house. New energy efficient boiler, windows, insulation etc..

I taught seen something about it one time, but I could be wrong

Or just hoping maybe !

Appreciate any input

Hello

There is provision for 'material improvements' to be discounted but these are defined as and restricted to 'extending, enlarging, repairing and converting' the property.

Check the legislation at
Housing Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2002 Section 9 (3) e (i) and (ii).

Good Luck.

Hi All,
Can some tell me if the doors that had to be replaced can be deducted from the sale price before the clawback is calculated between the council and the seller?
Also, does the seller have to pay the solicitors and auctioneers fees out of their pocket or can this be paid out of the sales proceeds before the clawback is calculated?
Thanks for your help, vicky

Hi Guys, do you own properties on the AH scheme part V from the boom years? How far into your contract are you? I bought mine in 2008 & the contract is killing me

there I'm wondering can anyone help I've googled and googled but just hitting brick walls...I'm in the process of selling my Affordable Home after 14 years I know how the calculation works...I'm selling after nearly 2 years of intimidation and harassment from the house attached I never wanted to sell but am left with no choice...I've invested alot of money in to my home and had a valuation of works done to try and hold on to some of the claw back...I'll not b making any profit but just need enough to buy something else I will still need to top up my mortgage with current house prices....I have discovered the house attached to me is also affordable although the Council told me it isn't...my question is do I have a case to fight my money invested against the claw back because of my situation and the fact if this family weren't beside me causing me to be in a living hell I wouldn't have to move my life....I've invested because this was my home but it's not any more feel like I'm living in a prison....any advice would be welcomed .
