Affordable Housing: Event for Estate Agents

Late last month Charles French & Co, in conjunction with the Council, gave a presentation on the resale of affordable homes.

Holly King from the firm’s New Build Department, based in St Austell, and Claire Gummow, based at Mevagissey were among those presenting.

The presentation was well received and dealt with various aspects of the sale and purchase of affordable properties from the various different view points, including Help to Buy SW.  The Charles French & Co team gave an overview of the legal aspects and issues that often arise, and discussed useful case studies to help others appreciate the most important issues to address, right from the start.  There was great attendance by local property professionals, with everyone enjoying a pasty afterwards. There will no doubt be further similar events in the future.
