Right to Buy

You could be eligible to buy your property through the Right to Buy scheme if:

  • The property is your main home/only place of residence
  • You are a secure tenant.
  • The property is self-contained.
  • For three years you have had a public sector landlord, such as a council, housing association or the NHS Trust.
  • You are making a joint application with someone who shares your tenancy.
  • You are making a joint application with up to three family members who have lived with you for at least a year.
  • Whilst you were living in the property it was owned by the council before being sold to another landlord.

You may be entitled to a discount ranging from 35-60% for a flat or 50-70% for a house; this can often vary depending on the length of time you have been a tenant in the property, the type of property and the total value of the property.

At Rotheras we have helped numerous clients to purchase their council house or housing association property through Right to Buy.

Why use Rotheras for Right to Buy?

We have a wealth of experience in making applications for Right to Buy and dealing with local councils in regards to applications.

We can advise you on any surveys to be carried out that the local authority has requested.

This was my first experience using a solicitor, something I felt quite daunted about. Rothera Sharp (Greg and Petra) put me at ease and were very helpful.

Last year I experienced a car accident, as a front seat passenger. I put forward a personal injury claim with Rothera Sharp. From start to finish, my claim has been dealt with efficiently and professionally, and I have always felt my best interests were considered. All communications were made via letter or email to inform me of all further updates. My claim has now come to an end and I am very happy with the overall outcome. I would recommend Rothera Sharp for their service.

We cannot recommend Chris Powell of Rothera Sharp more highly. Mr Powell demonstrated the upmost professionalism with a high level of knowledge of the area for which he was representing us. Anyone needing representation/advice regarding the area of haulage will find that Chris Powell and Rothera Sharp are the best choice.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.

Myth-busting – What are your Legal Rights in a Long-Term Relationship?

Between 1970 and 2015, marriage was in sharp decline. This cultural shift, as more people choose to live together, means there is confusion over the rights of individuals in long-term relationships. With the number of divorce and cohabiting cases on par here at Rotheras, this post answers questions you may have, what you can do and how to navigate a highly emotional period in your life.
