How long will it take?
After you have had appropriate financial advice either from ourselves or anybody else of your own choice you’ll be able of start the Right To Buy journey with us.
Based on your Council or Housing Association it can normally take upto 8 weeks to discover if you possess the Right To Buy, from there it could be a further 3 months to discover how much you can buy your new home for. Generally though, this process will often be much faster when using the righttobuy.coop service as we normally take around 90 days when using our own solicitors.
We’ll complete all of the forms as part of our service and distribute them to your Landlord. We’ll then chase the Council or Housing Association continuously on your behalf ensuring the most effective possible response. We’ll also deal with any communications from the Council and challenge them if required on your behalf if we feel they are being unfair or incorrect.
When the valuation is received, we’ll check its detail against other property prices in your area. We’ll ensure that your landlord has not taken into consideration any enhancements you have made whilst being a tenant. And we’ll appeal the valuation figure strongly if we believe it to be unfavourable.
We also recommend using our own Right to Buy solicitors who are specialists in the Right to Buy legal process. We have vetted our solicitors thoroughly and ensure they meet our very high standards and complete your purchase in the shortest possible time.
Your advisor will regularly keep in contact with you throughout the process to keep you fully informed.
