Resident Leaseholders (those currently living in the property they own on Dollis Valley), will be offered a property on the new development, leaseholders who do not live in their property on Dollis Valley will not be offered a new property.
The regeneration project is taking place on a phase by phase basis, therefore leaseholders will be contacted at different times depending on when their property is required and will be given plenty of time to consider their options and make decisions.
No, it is not possible for the developers to undertake early purchases of leasehold properties as the business plan is unable to support this.
Resident leaseholders have three main options to choose from when buying a new property:
If leaseholders choose option 1, they can buy any size property they can afford either on the new scheme or away from Dollis Valley. If leaseholders choose option 2 the new home they buy must be the same size as their current property or smaller.
Property valuations will be carried out by a firm of chartered surveyors and confirmation of the valuation provided to the leaseholder. If the leaseholder does not agree with the valuation they may appoint their own valuer to undertake a valuation and seek to reach a settlement with Countryside’s valuer.
Both resident and non-resident leaseholders will receive financial help to aid with the moving process. More detailed information for leaseholders can be found in the ‘Leaseholder Options’ document.
