The development will feature a great complex of Shared Ownership apartments and will include a café bistro, activity areas, and a 'pamper suite' where residents can arrange haircuts, manicures and beauty treatments.
These brand new 1 & 2 bedroom apartments will be offered for sale by Guinness Homes and are located close to the River Dart and just a couple of minutes by car to the town centre.

Frequently asked questions
Can I buy a home at Quayside outright?
Quayside is a Shared Ownership and rental development. There aren’t any properties available to purchase outright.
However, you can buy using our Shared Ownership scheme. Shared Ownership works here by purchasing 75% of the property and Guinness will retain ownership in the remaining 25%.
There is no rent to pay on the remaining 25% - you just pay a service charge for the communal facilities and the upkeep of the grounds and buildings.
The homes will be leasehold and have a 125 year lease.

What happens if I die?
If you die, your home will be passed on in the normal way under the terms of your will. If you have not made a will it will pass under the laws of intestacy. If you have left your home to someone in your will and they are over fifty-five then the lease could be transferred to them. If they wish to live in the property they would need to sell any current home before ownership could transfer.
Alternatively the home could be sold using The Guinness Partnership resale service and any funds raised would be transferred to your estate.
