How does the Right to Buy Scheme work?

The Right to Buy Scheme allows a social tenant (anyone who rents their home from a public body such as their local council or government) to buy their property at a lower price than the full market value.

You can apply to buy your council home if:

  • It is your main home
  • You are a secure tenant
  • You have had a public sector landlord (e.g. council, housing association or NHS trust) for 5 years

The level of discount you receive on the purchase price will depend on the type of property, the value of the property and how long you have lived at the property.

How can our Right to Buy conveyancers help you?

The Right to Buy conveyancing process can be more complicated than a regular house purchase with additional legal documentation containing restrictions on the re-sale of the property, which you need to be aware of.

Our specialist team of conveyancers and solicitors will be able to discuss and explain all the legal implications of a Right to Buy purchase with you to ensure you have and understand all the information you need before you go ahead with your purchase.

“Emma was extremely helpful throughout, everything was explained in detail making the process easier. A professional and helpful service throughout.”
