    Can I work from Home in a Shared Ownership Property? 6th Aug 18 at 7:11 PM
    I'm considering a shared ownership property as I'll be paying less than the current rental market value in my area. Will I be allowed to work from home as this will be a big factor in my decision?

    That would rather depend on the type of work. Any type of property is likely to have some sort of restriction on what you can do there.

    If you're employed and simply "work from home" then that's no problem.... so long as you're not the regional sales director holding sales meetings there twice a month!

    The problem with any agreements is where people are "running a business from home" that means they come to the attention of neighbours due to deliveries/visitors or unusual/non-residential behaviour being observed.

    e.g. if you did nails or hair .... or if you built bespoke garden furniture in your shed and then had a delivery van load it up once a week and remove it to a car boot sale where you sold them.

    In short: if nobody knows what you do, could a nosey neighbour who hates you "spot" that you're "running a business" and can they identify business-like behaviours that they can flag up as a nuisance (to them)?
