HOLD (Home Ownership for people with Long-term Disabilities) 

Homeownership opportunity for a number of one and two bed wheelchair adapted properties in Brighton, East Sussex. These properties would also be suitable for people with learning disabilities, especially if they have some form of existing or developing mobility requirements too.

My Safe Home can offer support to secure HOLD mortgages on these properties. HOLD is a Government approved home ownership model that uses an individual’s benefit entitlement to pay the interest only mortgage on their share and the rent on the part of the property owned by the Housing Association (that either developed it or purchased it on behalf of the person with a disability).

These properties are going to be put on the ‘open market’ in the New Year so any interested parties should get in touch with David Abbey, Managing Director, MySafeHome Limited as soon as possible. Contact David on 02476 402211 or email [email protected]
