If your home is owned by the local council or by a housing association, you may have what is known as the ‘Right to Buy’ your home. Usually, if you have been a tenant in a property for more than a year, you will be entitled to purchase the property at a substantial discount.
If you are looking at exercising the Right to Buy, you should speak to your local council or housing association, who will be able to provide you with details of how to apply and the terms on which they would be prepared to sell the property to you. Once you are happy with the terms being proposed, you will require a solicitor or conveyancer, who will act for you and your mortgage lender to ensure that all matters are in order for your purchase to take place.
Your transaction will be handled by a dedicated lawyer who will ensure that you are provided with easy-to-understand information throughout the right-to-buy process, with regular updates by e-mail, letter and telephone. You can e-mail or call us at any time to check on the progress of your matter.
