Purchase your council house utilising a Right to Buy in Canterbury.

If you are a tenant of a local council or housing association, you may find that you qualify for a Right to Buy in Canterbury. This scheme allows you you to purchase the local authority rental property that you are currently living in, for a discounted price.

The purchase price is calculated by applying a discount from the value of the home on the open market, whilst the discount you receive is determined by how long you have been a public sector tenant.

In order to use a Right to Buy in Canterbury, you will have generally needed to be renting from a local authority for at least 3 years, not always consecutively. This means, for example, you could live as a council tenant for 2 years, move into a private residence for a few years, then back into a council home for an additional year, and still potentially be eligible.

Right to Buy Mortgages in Canterbury FAQs

Can I still get a Right to Buy in Canterbury?

Accorion Arrow

Though it was brought into prominence way back in the 1980s, the UK Right to Buy Mortgage Scheme is still present in the world of mortgages and is available to eligible tenants in Canterbury who wish to purchase their home at a discounted purchase price.

The scheme has undergone several changes in the days since its inception, yet it still remains a valid option for prospective first time buyers in Canterbury. Thousands of tenants over the years have taken advantage of a Right to Buy in Canterbury, en route to becoming homeowners.

What is the process of a Right to Buy in Canterbury?

Accorion Arrow

In order for a home buyer to obtain a Right to Buy in Canterbury, you need to know whether or not you qualify for one. This can be achieved by requesting an application form via the local authority.

When the local authority has received your application form, they will get back to you with confirmation of your eligibility, as well as the discount you are due to receive and the overall property price once it has been applied.

During your initial free mortgage appointment, a member of our trusted mortgage advisors in Canterbury will work with you to check eligibility and total potential mortgage costs, as well as finding the best mortgage deal for your circumstances.

Throughout your home buying journey in Canterbury, we will be there to help by advising on solicitors and property surveys when appropriate to do so.

Do you need a deposit for a Right to Buy in Canterbury?

Accorion Arrow

Generally speaking, the vast majority of mortgage lenders will accept the right to buy discount as your deposit, although some will want you to put down either your own deposit or a combination of a deposit and the discount.

It is important to remember that there will still be other fees involved in your mortgage process, so it would be wise to keep some savings for that ahead of time.

Can my children buy my council home for me?

Accorion Arrow

Any family member can buy your council home, so long as they have been signed onto the tenancy for at least one year. If you are married or have a civil partner, providing that they already reside in the home with you, they can also have tenancy transferred onto them.

At that point, they would be eligible for a Right to Buy in Canterbury, though it would be in their name and not yours.

Can you buy your council house in Canterbury if you’re on benefits?

Accorion Arrow

Being on any type of benefits will not change your legal Right to Buy eligibility. That being said, from a mortgage lenders perspective, they need to know that you can afford to maintain your monthly mortgage payments.

One thing that may be affected is your ability to receive any benefits that are exclusive to being a tenant, such as Housing Benefit, which you will not be eligible for if you are a homeowner.
