Things to consider before buying your home

Getting the right advice

Before borrowing money to buy your home, take time to consider all the costs involved and the choices available. Compare loan and mortgage deals on offer before making up your mind. If possible get independent advice.

If you are approached by a person or company offering to help you buy your home, check out what's in it for them. Be suspicious if anyone tells you that the right to buy scheme is going to end. They may be trying to persuade you to do something that benefits them rather than you. If in any doubt contact the council.

For further information about the right to buy scheme, contact the Right to Buy Officer either on 01455 255890 or email

Alternatively you can visit right to buy: buying your council home (GOV.UK) for further information.
