The property is offered for sale under a Discount for Sale scheme. A qualifying purchaser is able to buy the apartment at a fixed percentage (60.50%) of the Open Market Value.

On future re sales, the same percentage of Market Value will apply, ensuring the property always remains under this affordable scheme.
