ELIGIBILITY

Under Charity Commission rules all applicants must meet certain requirements in order to qualify for a property.

Rules

All applicants must be:

  • over the age of 55.

  • in housing need.

  • of limited financial means*.

  • living or have lived for a significant period during the past 20 years in East Barnet, Chipping (High) Barnet or Friern Barnet or, exceptionally, in the London Borough of Barnet as a whole.

  • able to live and care for themselves independently.

The charity cannot offer residential or medical care. 
Emergency liaison is available. 

*The holding of some modest savings will not jeopardise the qualification for an almshouse but it is essential that a full disclosure of personal circumstances and financial matters is made.

Failure to do so could result in an offer being withdrawn later.
