Joining Old Hall

Interested in living in a community?

Members buy ‘loan stock’ which is their share of the Housing Association that is Old Hall. Standard mortgages are not available. Please email The Potential Members Secretary with enquiries at .People interested in becoming members of the community should write or e-mail The Potential Members Secretary giving biographical details, reasons for considering community life and the type of skills you would be contributing to the collective were you to be accepted. You will be sent an information pack about our application process and about costs and, if still interested, may then be invited to make an initial short visit of a few days in order for you to look around and to meet some of the members. After your first visit you may be invited to visit again. It is expected that potential members will visit several times and over a long period in order to get to know everyone and decide if the lifestyle suits them. The most important aspects of joining, however, are your relationship with the other people here and your commitment to work and the shared ethos of the community. The process can take time, especially if a suitable unit is not immediately available. If a unit space becomes available the community will make a decision and offer it to one of the potential members. A small charge is made for your visits and you will be expected to contribute to the daily running of the community as we all do.
