Frequently asked questions:

Am I guaranteed my application will be accepted? No we cannot make that guarantee. Applications are assessed against criteria set out in the Charity’s Governing Document and we can only accept applications which fit with those criteria. You will be notified or our decision in either case.

If my application is not successful will you keep the information I’ve supplied? We may keep some anonymous statistical information but nothing that would identify you.

Where can I get more information about my application? Contact our Schemes Managers on 0203 328 0248/9 or email ShelteredHousing@waltoncharity.org.uk

What form of occupation agreement do you grant? Walton on Thames Charity is an Almshouse charity provider and by law cannot grant tenancies but instead issues a Letter of Appointment. The Charity has a set of rules accompanying this Letter to which both parties are required to abide by.

Does this mean I would have no security of tenure? A Letter of Appointment does not grant the resident the same security of tenure rights as most tenants. However, Walton on Thames Charity does not treat anyone less favourably than if they held a tenancy. The sanction to remove a resident from a property can only be taken by the Board of Trustees and only if a special resolution to that effect is passed. We advise any prospective resident to seek legal advice or approach the CAB if they have concerns about the legal status of almshouse residents.

Must the warden call on me every day?  In most cases the warden will call daily. We may agree to waive this in certain circumstances. The Charity’s discretion in the matter is final and any alternative arrangement can be revoked at any time at its absolute discretion.
