Righttobuy.coop is a cooperative that’s been co-created by its members to help tenants purchase their council or housing association homes through the Right to Buy or the Right to Acquire Scheme.
We are ultimately a helpline that helps to ensure that you do not encounter the burden of any unnecessary costs and delays which is often associated with the Right to Buy home buying process.
By offering a free advice and support service including giving you advice on such things as your current property valuation, your discount entitlement, your credit score and assessment of your affordability and the type of property for mortgage lending purposes, enables us to keep you fully informed and in the know from day one and by ensuring that you fit the criteria upfront it also helps us to work alongside your current landlord throughout the entire process without any potential issues arising later on, down the line and as we are also helping in the process to reduce the work that your current landlord has to do, it also makes them a little happier too, which always helps.
righttobuy.coop’s team have been proactively helping tenants navigate the Right to Buy process since 2001 and have helped save over £390million to date in combined discounts.
The Right to Buy scheme was introduced in 1980 to help tenants buy their own home from their local council at a discounted price and to date many council tenants have taken full advantage of the scheme.
New Right to Buy discounts and qualifying criteria has been released from the Government in 2012 which now gives you a discount of up to £103,900. Soon, you will also be eligible to buy your council home after being a tenant for only 3 years rather than 5 years.
From listening to you – our members and clients who are central to everything we do – we’ve been inspired to create a trusted, ethical non-profit social enterprise to give you help and support when you need it most, as buying a house is probably one of the biggest decisions you will ever have to make in your lifetime.
Right to Buy Co-op understand that buying your first home is a big step for many people and something that you will want to ask many questions about. Over the years we’ve built up a knowledge and expertise which can give you instant answers to questions asked by people in the same position as yourself.
We have a team of experts dedicated to ensuring your questions, however big or small, are answered quickly and honestly.
