Right to Buy

Am I eligible?

You might be able to buy your home if:

  • You rent your home from Bromford and have a 'secure' tenancy - a tenancy given to you by Bromford before 15 January 1989 OR
  • You were a Council tenant when the management of your home was transferred to us from Cotswold District Council or Lichfield District Council AND
  • You don't live in sheltered or other housing specifically for elderly or disabled people AND
  • You don't have any outstanding possession orders against you because you have breached the terms of your tenancy agreement.

Discount available

The discount available to you depends on how long you have held your tenancy (public sector tenancy) for. The maximum discount available is £77,900 in England and £8,000 in Wales.

Can I afford to buy my home?

  • You may need a mortgage
  • You will need to pay for solicitors' fees, survey costs, and a mortgage arrangement fee
  • You will be responsible for the cost of all repairs to the property
  • You will be responsible for service charges for maintaining any communal / shared areas
  • You will be responsible for paying buildings insurance

We strongly recommend you look at property prices in your area and the mortgage amount you are likely to need before applying to buy your home.
