Buy Your Council House Under the Right to Buy Scheme
The Right to Buy scheme was introduced by the government to allow people living in council-owned properties the opportunity to buy them at a discounted price. You are eligible for the Right to Buy scheme if you are a secure tenant of council property and have spent at least 3 years as a public sector tenant. These three years don’t have to be consecutive.
There are multiple factors that will determine what price you will pay for the property. The government are most likely to take into account things like how long you’ve lived there, where you are in the country and how long you’ve been a council tenant etc.
One big advantage of a Right to Buy mortgage is that it is most likely that there is already equity in the house, this could knock some off your house price or be used as part of your deposit.
