The Right to Buy scheme was first introduced by the Government in 1980. It allows council and some other secure tenants to buy their rented council or housing association home at a discounted price.
If such an opportunity arises, it is valuable to be steered through what can be a complicated conveyancing process and to ensure your best interests are protected.
This is why Attwaters Jameson Hill’s expert Residential Property team is here.
We pledge to provide every client with outstanding personal service and communication, unrivalled industry knowledge and a proven track record of advising our clients regarding the Right to Buy scheme.
How do we achieve this?
Our attentive Residential Property team will help you through the process and advise you on everything you’ll need to know such as your entitlement, your discount eligibility, your rights and on funding your purchase.
We will advise you on all the time limits required on both sides of the deal. In particular, the council or housing association landlords have the right to request that you repay some, or all, of the discount received, should you decide to sell your property within five years of buying.
Attwaters Jameson Hill’s residential property team know how important it is to have the support of intuitive lawyers with real experience and market know-how. While protecting your interests, our Residential Property team will focus on what you really want – a speedy, satisfactory and stress-free completion.
We have been awarded the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS) accreditation which recognises our exceptional standards of client service, professional expertise and risk management in Residential Conveyancing.
