As a Right to Buy specialist with years of expertise we'll be sure to provide you with the Right

The overall cost for comparison is 8.4% APR. The actual rate available will
depend upon your circumstances. Ask for a personalised illustration. No upfront fees. - all costs are payable
only on completion, including legal fees and valuation which we arrange on your behalf. These can usually be added to your
Right to Buy mortgage. However, in doing so, interest will become payable on this amount over the full term of the mortgage
or until it is repaid. Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

As a Council tenant, under the Right to Buy scheme, you can buy your home at a price lower than the
full market value. This is because the length of time spent as a tenant entitles you to a discount!
Direct Mortgage & Finance can in most cases arrange mortgages for over and above
the discounted purchase price so that you can borrow some extra money for home improvements as well.
The amount of discount you qualify for varies, and takes several factors into consideration; from how long
you've been a tenant to which borough, district or county you reside in.
The Right to Buy scheme is aimed at secure tenants of local authorities and those assured tenants of registered
social landlords who previously held secure tenancies with local authorities.
If you have been a tenant before 18 January 2005 and have spent at least 2 years
as a secure tenant (either with a Council, a Housing Association, or certain other public bodies)
you can purchase your home at a generous discount!
However, if your tenancy started after 18 January 2005 you will have to wait until you have
spent at least 5 years as a public sector tenant before you can buy.
