The Right to Buy does not apply:
Tenants are normally contacted by door-to-door representatives from private companies offering to help them buy their Council homes. They may offer a mortgage, legal services or an "all-in" package that may include home improvements after buying. In some cases tenants do not want to buy their home but feel pressured into signing forms just to get rid of the salesperson.
By signing documents you have not read properly, you may be entering into a legal agreement in which you may have to pay the company thousands of pounds. You are of course free to deal with such companies if you wish, but we feel we should bring this to your attention.
If you are approached by a person or company offering to help you buy your home, ask for identification, check out what’s in it for them and feel free to talk to us before signing up to any deal.
