Self Builders are invited to register interest
We reported last year that four self build plots in Auldearn will be marketed to local first time buyers at a fixed purchase price for each plot, which has been made possible by the Council discounting the sale price to make the plots affordable. In order to protect this investment, prospective purchasers will be required to accept conditions within the titles which include a requirement that if the house is sold, the seller will repay the Council the percentage discount on the plot based on the valuation at the time of sale.
The plots will be targeted to the following groups of first time buyers (in order of priority):
- Council and/or housing association tenants who live in Auldearn; then
- Other first time buyer households who live in Auldearn; then
- Council and/or housing association tenants who live elsewhere in Nairnshire; then
- Other first time buyer households who live in Nairnshire.
The discounted price is currently being determined (in view of the present market conditions) and the plots will be marketed soon. To register your interest please phone Heather Bebbington or Paul Brown in the Housing Development Team at Highland Council on 01463 702831 or 01463 702878 or email:
