At Gorvins Residential, our dedicated residential right to buy solicitors team are experts in helping prospective homeowners. Our specialist team will provide potential owners with all of the information they need to know about the Right to Buy scheme and guide them step-by-step through, what can sometimes be, a complicated process.
The Right to Buy scheme has been formed by the government to enable social tenants (i.e. you rent your home from a public body such as your local council or government) in England and Wales the opportunity to purchase their property at a lower price than the full market value.
The scheme also applies to former local authority tenants who were living in their home when the council transferred to another non-charitable housing provider. In this instance, it is sometimes called ‘preferred’ right to buy.
The scheme is available to those who have been a council or public sector tenant for at least five years in total, however, this does not have to be in the same property or with the same landlord. It does not have to be continuous either as long as the total period spent in a council property is five years or more.
The scheme is NOT available to you if:
As the right to buy process can be complicated it is important to seek professional legal advice from experienced conveyancers.

Through a very stressful process buying a first home, Gorvins were confident and collected. Able to deliver what they promised and kept me updated through the stages. I was glad to have No Stress experience with our conveyancer in amongst the chaos of the rest of it.
Used as recommended by my mortgage advisor for a remortgage. My case was dealt with by Natasha Sands and she made it complete smoothly and to my satisfaction. Communication was great and all my questions answered promptly. Will not hesitate to use again next time.
Fantastic service and for a fair price, special thanks to Joseph Hirst who dealt with my account from start to finish and was always on hand to deal with any queries I had, always got back to me in good time and made the whole process as stress free as possible.
Go with Gorvins, if you want peace of mind!
I recently instructed Gorvins to act on my behalf in the purchase of 5 apartments in Liverpool. I am happy to report that I was more than pleased with their performance.The services provided by the person in charge of the file at Gorvins was most professional, reliable and efficient. In fact she went out of her way to help in aspects which was not her responsibility and as a result the deal went through smoothly.
