This isn’t a mortgage option we recommend searching the high street for. Not all lenders offer Right to Buy mortgages and each lender’s terms, including amount of discount, and criteria are different. But our Mortgage Advice Hub team have access to the whole of the market and know the best lenders for you to approach, especially if you have poor credit.
Owning your own house is a big decision and commitment, so we will also recommend you have legal and financial advice. This could be your first step on the property ladder so we want to make sure it’s a good one; and the best move for you and your family.
You’ll need to have been a public sector tenant for at least five years, then with each extra year, your Right to Buy mortgage discount increases, up to a maximum of 70%. Qualifying tenants of local authorities and non-charitable housing associations have been able to buy their homes under this scheme since 1980. But all lenders’ terms differ. We can help you and explain the whole process of applying, as well as do the paperwork for you if you need us to.

Think carefully before securing other debts against your home.
Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
