Buy your council house under a Right to Buy in Nottingham

If at the moment you are currently residing in a council house and you are named on the tenancy agreement, you may be eligible to purchase your home from the local authority (this is usually the council or housing association) for a discounted price.


Generally speaking, you’ll find that because you are being given a discounted purchase price, you won’t be required to put down a deposit (though this isn’t always the case).

What is a Right to Buy in Nottingham?

The Right to Buy Scheme is ran by the government, and will allow any eligible tenants who are living within England, to purchase their current rental property from the council for a slightly discounted price.


So long as you have spent at least 3 years (this doesn’t always have to be continuous) renting from your local authority and are secure tenants of your local authorities property, you may be eligible for a Right to Buy in Nottingham.


When you purchase a property via Right to Buy in Nottingham, that property will be valued at the full market price with the discount from the government being applied before you make your purchase.

How is the discount is worked out?

The discount will be at a percentage of the property price. This discount is determined from a few different factors, such as where you are living, as well as how long you have been a council tenant.


Something that is perceived to be a major advantage for taking out a Right to Buy in Nottingham is that because of your discount, there will be equity already in your house. Again, there’s a lot that will determine how much, such as your discount amount and the properties true value.

Common mortgage

Usually, mortgage lenders will let you use your Right to Buy discount as a deposit. However, other lenders may expect you to put down an additional deposit to be certain that you’ll be able to afford a Right to Buy mortgage in Nottingham.

Your free mortgage consultation with us will last around an hour. During this consultation, your dedicated Mortgage Advisor in Nottingham will get to learn a bit more about your personal and financial situation.

Once your consultation is finished, your Mortgage Advisor in Nottingham will go away and try and find you a perfect mortgage deal tailored to your circumstances. If you love the mortgage offer that they’ve picked out and want to continue, the next step is to submit your mortgage application!

Our mortgage process consists of multiple different steps:

1. Once you get in touch, we will have you carry out our Fact Find so that we can get a bigger picture of your mortgage situation.

2. You’ll undergo your free mortgage consultation, then your dedicated Mortgage Advisor in Nottingham will begin searching for mortgage deals that are tailored to your circumstances. If we find you an offer that you are happy to proceed with, we can get the ball rolling with your mortgage application.

3. We will perform a credit check on you in order to obtain an agreement in principle. Furthermore, we will get some evidential documents from you in order to back up your mortgage application.

4. We will submit your mortgage application and wait for a formal mortgage offer to be issued.

As a Mortgage Broker in Nottingham, we always advise applicants to obtain an Agreement in Principle before viewing properties. Firstly, you’ll need an Agreement in Principle to make an offer on a property. Secondly, having one in place could put you in a position to negotiate prices.

An Agreement in Principle typically lasts for 30-90 days. This timeframe may change depending on the lender that you are using.

If your Agreement in Principle expires, you can easily renew it by getting back in touch with your Mortgage Advisor in Nottingham or your lender.

It’s possible to obtain a second mortgage; as a Mortgage Broker in Nottingham, here are the most common reasons we see for people wanting a second mortgage:

– Debt consolidation
– Home Improvements
– Buy to Let
– Other, e.g. for a Family Member, Holiday Home, etc.

If you’ve had bad credit issues in the past, you may find it a little harder to get a mortgage, but that isn’t saying you still can’t get one!

Lenders may ask for a slightly higher deposit if you’ve had bad credit in the past. Some lenders may ask for a deposit of around 10-15%.

If you are able to submit at least one year’s of accounts, the more likely you are of being able to obtain a mortgage. Most of the lenders that we use look at your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount. Others may go off your net profit, it all depends on the lender.

  • Photo ID (Driving license, Passport, etc.).
  • Proof of Address (Utility bills, tax bills, credit card statements, etc.).
  • Latest 3 months’ payslips & Latest P60 (employed applicants)
  • Latest 2 years’ tax calculations and corresponding overviews (self-employed applicants)
  • 3 months’ bank statement proving the deposit being built-up with an explanation for any large credits.
