Procedure of buying your council house property with PSR Solicitors
Once you have made the decision to buy your Council House under a Right To Buy scheme you will need to contact your Council and commence the statutory application requirements. If you instruct us once your application has been accepted or at an early stage we can arrange with you to have the initial forms and necessary checks completed in readiness. Once the offer has been agreed between you and the Council we will have the necessary information to hand to immediately start the legal process of purchasing your Council House without delay. The more quickly and smoothly the transaction runs the more quickly you will own your home.
Once we have received the contract pack from the Council’s legal department we can commence with searches, investigate the legal title to the property and raise any relevant enquiries. Once we are satisfied with all the replies to our enquiries, results of searches and are in receipt of any required mortgage offer, a completion date can be proposed. Final confirmation from the Council that all rent is paid up to date will be required before completion can take place.
Should you require a mortgage on the property we will liaise with your mortgage lender, deal with their requirements and request the mortgage funds in readiness for completion. We will pay for the searches and any stamp duty land tax on your behalf.
Please note that for a set period of time after buying your Council House you must first offer it back to the Council should you wish to sell it in the future. You may also have to repay your discount to the Council if you sell within a specified period.
Our experienced solicitors can also assist you with buying under Right To Buy:
- Your legal and beneficial interests in the property
- Lack of rights which need to benefit the property
- Lack of Planning Permission or Building Regulations Approval
- Restrictions affecting the property
- Additional financial charges affecting the property
- Adverse search results affecting the property
