Right to buy

If you are a council tenant and you are looking to buy your home, then you may have the legal right to buy.

Things to consider before buying a home:

– When you are looking at the difference between renting and buying, don’t just check the weekly payments.

– Remember your rent includes things like buildings insurance and a free repairs service. If you buy your home you would have to pay for these things yourself.

– If you are thinking of buying, beware of sales people who may try to get you to sign deals on the doorstep. Get independent financial advice from a bank or building society.
