First Dibs for Londoners
- 6 February 2018
Paul Hackett, chair of the G15 and chief executive of Optivo, appeared on ITV London News on Monday (5 February) to discuss The Mayor of London’s announcement around offering Londoners ‘first dibs’ on new homes.
The G15 has committed to the following:
- Restricting the sales and marketing of all new build market homes in London with a sale price of £350,000 or below to UK residents only. This will be for a period of at least three months before commencing any overseas sales or marketing
- Providing a ‘head start’ for Londoners in accessing new build market homes in London by restricting the sales of all new market homes valued at £350,000 or less to Londoners only. This will be for the first month of the three-month restricted marketing period
- Marketing all homes that are being sold under the Help to Buy scheme in London through the Homes for Londoners property portal
