Buy Your Council House Under the Right to Buy Scheme

The Right to Buy scheme was brought in by the government to allow eligible tenants in the UK to purchase their council house for a discounted price.


If you wanted to see whether or not you qualify for the Right to Buy scheme, visit your council’s website and give them a call and they should tell you what the entry requirements are. Once you find out if you are able to access the scheme, it’s time to get the ball rolling and begin the Right to Buy process!


Right to Buy Mortgage Advisor in Cambridge

Usually, you don’t need to put down a deposit for your council home due to the large amount of equity that has been built up inside the property. Meaning, for some tenants, this can be a great way of getting onto the property ladder. The amount of equity that is inside the house depends on how much your discount is and the value of the property.


Depending on your lender, you may be able to borrow additional funds to use for home improvements. This could be an option worth considering, especially if you have already saved money by not needing a deposit as it could balance out in the future. When we say home improvements, we mean anything ranging from new double glazed windows to extensions or conversions. A Mortgage Advisor in Cambridge can advise you on these accordingly.


How is the Discount Worked Out?

The discount percentage is worked out using a variety of different factors such as where you live in the country, how long you’ve been a council tenant/long you’ve lived within the country.

The Right to Buy Process

  1. Step one is to contact your local council and ask for a Right to Buy mortgage application form to fill out which shouldn’t take too long.
  2. If you qualify for the scheme, your council will work out a discounted property price. They will then send you the purchase price to which you’ll have a set amount of time to accept their offer.
  3. Once you have accepted your offer, we can start to get the ball rolling with your Help to Buy mortgage application.


You may want to start thinking about your monthly outgoings too, there is nothing wrong with getting prepared for a mortgage early. We would always recommend that you work out what you have now as a tenant, then compare that to what it would be like if you were a homeowner. Remember, your Right to Buy Mortgage Broker in Cambridge is always available to help you with this.

Once your consultation gets concluded, we will try to turn around an Agreement in Principle within 24-hours. An Agreement in Principle is essential when making an offer on a property, as estate agents and sellers often accept those who already have an AIP than those who haven’t.

The final step is to submit your mortgage application and wait for a formal mortgage offer. Usually, this will take about 2 -4 weeks – provided the process goes smoothly, and your application is relatively straightforward.

This is sometimes the case if you’ve been struggling with credit problems. Our Mortgage advisors in Cambridge are readily available to answer any Right-to-Buy deposit questions you may have.
