To help us process your application as quickly as possible, please ensure you send copies of the documents we need (detailed below). We aim to allocate properties as soon as we are able and a delay in providing this documentation may mean that you miss out on the property.

3) Documents can be posted to our office at Link Housing, Watling House, Callendar Business Park, Falkirk, FK1 1XR. Please note that this may delay your application being processed. Do not send original documents as we will not be able to return them.

Wages & income

To qualify for Shared Ownership, you must have a combined household income of at least £15,000. Unfortunately if you are in receipt of Housing Benefit of Local Housing Allowance you will not be eligible for the scheme. 

We need to verify the income for all applicants. For this we need copies of the last 3 monthly payslips, or last 13 if paid weekly, for each applicant. If you are self employed please provide a copy of your last year's accounts or most recent SA302 tax form.

If you receive any benefit payments (including Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit and Personal Independence Payment) please provide a copy of your current award notice. 

Bank Statements

Each applicant must provide copies of their previous 3 months complete bank statements showing both income and rent/mortgage payments where applicable. We will use these bank statements to look for evidence that you are able to effectively manage your money.
