Buying your council house?

If you live in a council owned property, you could be entitled to purchase the premises at a lower price than the true market value, dependant on the length of time you have spent as a council tenant, in accordance with the Right To Buy scheme. You may be entitled to a Right To Buy Mortgage.

When applying for your mortgage, lenders consider numerous factors which may influence whether they lend you the money to purchase your council property. Such include age, employment status, loan to value ratio, amount required and credit history.

With a bad credit history, many mortgage brokers would refuse almost instantly. However, this is now not the case.
