What is Right to Buy?

Right to Buy is a government scheme designed to allow those living in public sector housing to buy their homes at a discounted price. Public sector housing refers to any property owned by a housing association, local council, or government department. The size of the discount available through Right to Buy depends upon various factors including the length of time you’ve lived at the property in question, the type of property involved (e.g., flat or house) and its value. If you want help figuring out if you qualify for Right to Buy or guidance about how to get started, call a member of our expert team today!

Who qualifies for Right to Buy?

To qualify for Right to Buy you simply need to have been a public sector tenant for at least 3 years. It is important to note that you don’t need to have been living in the same property throughout this time, and nor does the period have to be continuous. As long as you have accrued 3 years in public sector housing during your life, you will be eligible for the discount. If you haven’t already, why not speak with your landlord to find out if you’re eligible?

Do I need a deposit for Right to Buy?

The good news about Right to Buy is that you don’t necessarily need to save up a deposit. Instead, you can use your Right to Buy discount, although not all lenders will be happy to accept this. If you’re struggling to amass a large amount of cash for a deposit, our expert advisors can help direct you to those lenders who will accept your application without one. Just get in touch with our team and we can talk everything through!

What discount is available through Right to Buy?

The discount you receive through Right to Buy varies depending on a range of factors. If you live in a council house (rather than a flat) and have done for 3-5 years, you’ll get a 35% discount. This discount will rise by 1% each year until the maximum discount is reached. In London, this stands at £116,200, and £87,200 for the rest of the country. If you live in a flat, you can get a 50% discount if you’ve lived there for 3-5 years, and this discount will increase by 2% for each additional year.
