Under this scheme Kerry County Council provides housing sites at a low cost. To be eligible for one of these sites you must be a first time buyer and satisfy the income test below:-
Single income household
Multiply your gross income (before tax) in the last income year by 2.5. If the result is €100,000 or less you are eligible.
Two income household
Multiply the gross income (before tax) of the principal (greater) income in the last income tax year by 2.5 and add the gross income of the subsidiary (lesser) earner in the last income tax year. If the result is €100,000 or less, you are eligible.
Where a site was originally provided under the low cost sites scheme by Kerry County Council there is a requirement that you refund a % of the proceeds from the sale of your property. The cost of building your house may be met through a conventional mortgage from a bank, building society or Kerry County Council.
