Council Tax

Council Tax Support: 020 8227 2050

Council Tax Support / Reduction is a means-tested support programme provided by the LBBD to help residents pay their Council Tax. If you are entitled to support, our team can work out how much you are entitled to. This means your or your partner’s income and capital, or an income of anyone living with you, is assessed to calculate if you are entitled to Council Tax Support. If you are entitled to support, we can work out how much you are entitled to. You could get Council Tax Support to help you pay your Council Tax if you are on other benefits or you work part-time or work full-time on a low income.

Who can claim?

You can claim Council Tax Support if you:
  • Are liable to pay Council Tax
  • Occupy the home on which Council Tax Support is to be awarded
  • Satisfy a means test

Property Developers are enabling people to get on the Ladder, but break the upper and lower rungs.

Shared Ownership - Fooled Customer

"I purchased a shared ownership property two and a half years ago. At the time this was the one and only way I could get on the property ladder in Greater London. "

Shared Ownership Trap

"I was able to purchase 50% (but you don't get a choice as I had to purchase the most that I could afford based on pre purchase assessment calculations). Since then my situation has changed and I am trying to sell the property but I am encountering serious problems which is causing a ton of stress. "

There is ZERO interest from buyers on the property. Which must be down to the percentage share and valuation of the property. The property is a studio flat and the share value of 50% is approximately 140k.

The problem is that there are many of properties in the area where you can buy a smaller share but own a far larger flat with 2 or 3 bedrooms. I feel completely stuck at the moment because even bailing is not an option without wiping out almost all of my capital I have put towards the property over the last two years. This includes my deposit to get on the property ladder in the first place. If I were to turn back time I would probably buy a smaller share of a bigger property. I have no idea what to do in this situation. I really need to get out of this flat but sub letting isn't allowed. At least, it's a risk to do in case you get caught. There's also Airbnb but there's no guarantee anyone will rent the flat, and I would think that is also classes as sub letting. Also in London you can only Airbnb a place for a maximum of 3 months.

I can't afford to buy the remaining 50% and then sell it outright. I can't think of any other options available to me. If anyone on the forum can offer any advice or words of wisdom I would be hugely appreciative. I'm at a complete loss and desperate to find some way out.
