(b)the percentage of the value of the dwelling paid as a premium on the day on which a lease is granted under the shared ownership arrangement does not exceed 75 per cent of the market value (where the market value at any time is the price which the dwelling might reasonably be expected to fetch if sold at that time on the open market);

(c)on the day on which a lease is granted under the shared ownership arrangement, the annual rent payable is not more than three per cent of the value of the unsold interest;

(d)in any given year the annual rent payable does not increase by more than the percentage increase in the retail prices index for the year to September immediately preceding the anniversary of the day on which the lease was granted plus 0.5 per cent.

(5) Relief under this regulation is referred to in these Regulations as social housing relief.

“introductory tenancy” has the same meaning as in Chapter 1 of Part 5 of the Housing Act 1996;
