Partial Redemption occurring on the December 2017 IPD
We refer to the notice of the Issuer dated 4 December 2017 in which the Issuer informed Noteholders that it received funds from Your Housing Limited (formerly Arena Housing Group Limited) in relation to the prepayment of its loan (“4 December Notice”).
The Issuer has been made aware that the amounts referred to in the 4 December Notice were incorrect as certain amounts of interest were double-counted in the amounts of Prepayment Premium.

(together, the “Your Housing Prepayment Amounts”)
Pursuant to the Supplemental Trust Deed, the Your Housing Prepayment Amounts were, as is required, applied to partially redeem the Notes and pay Noteholders on the Interest Payment Date (as defined in the Trust Deed) falling in December 2017 (the “December 2017 IPD”) in accordance with the terms of the Transaction Documents as follows (the “December 2017 Redemption”):
- £6,826,396.38 was applied to redeem the Notes. This amount forms part of the total principal amount due and payable and which was applied to redeem the Notes on the December 2017 IPD of £9,866,389.25;
- £281,588.85 was applied in payment of interest due and payable in respect of the Notes. This amount forms part of the total interest amount due and payable and which was applied in respect of the Notes on the December 2017 IPD of £4,064,556.42;
- £2,507,688.72 was applied in payment of the Prepayment Premium; and

The Issuer wishes to inform Noteholders following the partial redemption of the Notes on the payment date falling in June 2017 and the December 2017 Redemption, that the column headed “Principal Amount to be redeemed per £100” and the column headed “Principal Amount Outstanding Per £100 After Redemption”, in each case set out under the heading Mandatory Amortising Redemption at Condition 5(b) of the Notes shall be adjusted pursuant Condition 5(b) of the Notes. The figures in the column headed Principal Amount to be Redeemed per £100 shall be replaced with the figures in the column headed “New Principal to be Redeemed per £100” and the figures in the column headed and the column headed “Principal Amount Outstanding Per £100 After Redemption” shall be replaced with the figures in the column headed “New Principal Amount Outstanding per £100 after redemption”, in each case, as set out below (the “Adjusted Amortisation Figures”):

June 2017 IPD Allocations
We also refer to the notice of the Issuer dated 8 June 2017 in which the Issuer informed Noteholders that Midland Heart Limited and The Riverside Group Limited prepaid their respective loans and that, pursuant to the Supplemental Trust Deed, the amounts of the prepayments were, as is required, applied to partially redeem the Notes and pay Noteholders on the Interest Payment Date (as defined in the Trust Deed) falling on 7 June 2017 (the “June 2017 IPD”).
In partial redemption of the Notes on the June 2017 IPD, an amount of £22,471,525.57 was applied to principal and an amount of £12,504,892.75 was applied to interest and make-whole amounts. However, the Issuer has subsequently been made aware that whilst the overall amount of the payments made to Noteholders was correct, the allocation between principal and interest and make-whole amounts paid on the June 2017 IPD was not. The amount that should have been allocated to principal on the June 2017 IPD is £22,135,851.41 and the amount that should have been allocated to interest and make-whole amounts on the June 2017 IPD is £12,840,566.91 (the “Misallocation”).
The Issuer has been informed that on the June 2017 IPD the Misallocation resulted in an overpayment of principal to Noteholders of £335,674.16 and an underpayment of interest and make-whole amounts to Noteholders of £335,674.16.
The Adjusted Amortisation Figures reflect a position in which the Misallocation has been corrected. The Issuer has made payments on the December 2017 IPD in connection with the December 2017 Redemption to reflect the Adjusted Amortisation Figures in order to correct such overpayment of principal and underpayment of interest and make-whole amounts.
