We can Help you Buy Your Council House Under the Right to Buy Scheme

The Right to Buy Scheme is another government scheme that is designed to help people that live in council houses take the step onto the property ladder. This scheme gives them the right to buy their rented home, often at a generous discount. Over the years we have helped many first-time buyers take the property leap with the Right to Buy scheme. From your initial call, all through the process, your Mortgage Advisor in Cardiff is here to support you.

 

We often see that due to a large amount of discount being offered, no deposit will be required from the lender, instead just taking the discount as the deposit. Money for home improvements, such as a new conservatory, windows or extension options is also an option with some of the mortgage lenders we work with.

First of all, your free mortgage consultation should last around 30-60 minutes. Once this is complete, your Mortgage Advisor in Cardiff will obtain an Agreement in Principle for you within 24-hours.

During your mortgage application in Cardiff, if you’re Self-Employed, you’ll need to submit at least one year’s accounts. As a Mortgage Broker in Cardiff, we’ve found that most lenders use your salary plus dividend to calculate the maximum mortgage amount that you can borrow. Although, some lenders may choose to go off your net profit.

Depending on why you want to get a second mortgage, it may be easier to get one than not.

There are various reasons why someone may want a second mortgage, for example:

– Buy to Let
– Debt Consolidation
– Home Improvements
– Second Home
– Marital / Relationship Breakdown

It’s likely that you’ll be given a council discount on your Right to Buy; as a Mortgage Broker in Cardiff, we’ve found that most lenders will use this as your deposit.

However, we’ve also seen that some lenders will still require a deposit for your Right to Buy mortgage on top of the discount. If you’ve had a poor credit history, lenders are likely to use this approach.

We make it so easy!
