Jersey residents on a government scheme which helps people to get on the property ladder are being asked to return a consent form or lose their place on the waiting list.

The deadline for submission is Friday 1 October for everyone on the Band 5 waiting list.

Andium Homes have taken on the management of the homes and the document allows applications for the scheme to be transferred to the new provider.

Nearly half of applicants have failed to do so and risk losing their place on the waiting list.

Islanders can email S.HousingGateway@gov.je. if they have not received an email.
