  • Housing Association legal advice wanted.

    Two and a half years ago my wife and I bought our first house, which we still reside in, through a shared ownership scheme. We were chuffed to bits because we were on the ladder with something we could afford. Absolute pure bliss after living with my witch of a mother-in-law for a year after leaving the forces.

    Anyhow, our end terrace is on a development of 8 properties (all 3 bed); 3 other terraces and 4 semis behind us in a small close. The terraced houses all understandably have a pretty small garden, about 25 feet long, but the semis gardens are much larger. One of them being about five times the size of ours in terms of square meterage.

    A substantially larger property but they paid the same as us. A price which was set by the housing association.

    Now I happen to think that this is pretty unfair as it's obvious that they have put some thought into the semis but just squeezed the terraces in. Is there any way that I can get something back off them? I still only own 50% so a is a reduction in the price of the second half an option or am I clutching at straws?

    Cheers in advance guys and girls.
