        Get Started with a Broker

        Maximise your chance of approval with specialist advice from a mortgage expert

        Are interest rates any different through the scheme?

        Not generally. In most cases you should be able to secure a lender’s standard rates for your Right to Buy mortgage, although of course rates do vary depending on your circumstances.

        For a Right to Buy mortgage there will be a couple of key factors that will influence the rate you’re eligible for, namely the amount of discount you qualify for and how this translates to your LTV, and your credit history.

        The larger the discount you can get under the Right to Buy scheme, the lower your LTV and the better the rates you’re likely to be eligible for. Similarly, if you have any cash of your own to contribute towards the deposit, this could help to make your Right to Buy mortgage cheaper.

        Your credit history will affect your rates just as it would with any mainstream mortgage – if you have significant credit issues you should seek the help of a broker who will be able to identify a more specialist lender.

        Other costs and fees to factor in

        When you buy a house there are a lot of costs that go alongside the basic mortgage so even if you’re looking for a no deposit Right to Buy mortgage, you’ll still need some money set aside.

        These costs can include:

        • Mortgage arrangement fees
        • Valuation and survey costs
        • Legal fees

        You may find that many lenders offer deals with low or no arrangement fees and sometimes with free valuations and legal fees thrown in, so if cash is an issue for you then let your broker know that these sort of deals would appeal.
