It is a criminal offence to knowingly or recklessly make a false declaration or withhold information reasonably required in connection with your application. I/We have read the above and confirm that I/we have provided accurate and up to date information relating to my/our application for home ownership.
I understand that if it is found that false information has been given to obtain housing either knowingly or recklessly, appropriate legal action may be taken and the RP or local authority and/or seek possession of any leasehold tenancy granted.
I understand that as a Council, RP or other public sector tenant, I must give up my rented home on the day of completion if I buy or rent through any of the RP’s offering homes.
I authorise Yorkshire Housing to pass information to Local Authorities, Partner RP’s, developers, credit reference agencies and to Estate Agents who may be able to assist in locating properties for applicants.
