Right to Buy

Right to Buy

Our Property & Conveyancing specialists have helped thousands of people who have made use of the Right to Buy scheme, providing them with the ability to buy their council home, and often at a greatly reduced price. We are with you every step of the way, from pre-contract right through to completion and it’s our job to make the whole process as smooth as possible.

We are also a full service law firm, meaning that our specialists can support with mortgages, transfer of property and even creating a Will. Whatever you need, we are here to help.


A typical right to buy purchase takes approximate 12-15 weeks but this is dependent on several factors. We will be able to give a clearer estimate on discussion of your case.
