Right To Buy Mortgages

Right to Buy is a government backed mortgage scheme designed to help your client buy the home they currently rent at a discounted price. We are supporting Right to Buy with a range of mortgages.

If your client is interested in the mortgage scheme they will need to contact their landlord to find out if they qualify. We will require a Right to Buy document confirming eligibility and discounted purchase price.

Why choose Leeds?

  • Right to Buy lending is available for up to 100% of the borrowers discounted purchase price
  • We will lend up to 75% of the property value for the purpose of home improvements, subject to the borrower obtaining a letter/deed of postponement from the landlord confirming ranking agreement
