5 Stars

Are you wondering, "Can I Buy My Council House?" Buying a council house may seem complex, but with the right guidance, you can navigate the process smoothly. At Yes FS, we're here to help you understand the new rules and benefits associated with council house purchases.

Right to Buy Discounts Update:

Recent updates have made it even more enticing to buy your council property. These discounts are substantial, potentially reaching up to £96,000 for a flat or house, and even higher in London boroughs, with yearly increases linked to the Consumer Price Index (CPI).

Who Qualifies for Discounts?

Discount eligibility depends on factors such as your tenure with a public sector landlord, the type of property you're buying, and its current value. If purchasing jointly, the discount is based on the longest-standing public sector tenant.

Flat vs. House Discounts:

Flats offer discounts of up to 70% or £96,000 in England and £127,900 in London boroughs, with percentages increasing for longer tenures. Houses have a maximum discount of 70% or £96,000 in England and £127,900 in London boroughs, with gradual increases.

Selling Your Home:

If you sell within five years, you may need to repay some or all of the discount. After five years, you can sell without this obligation, giving you more flexibility.

Get Started with a Mortgage for Your Council House:

To begin, assess your credit rating. At Yes FS, we simplify this process by guiding you to reputable credit check companies like Money Saving Expert, Check My File, Experian, or Equifax. Your credit report showcases your financial reliability, including payment history and any negative marks, which stay on record for six years.

Benefits of Homeownership:
