Do I need a deposit for a Right to Buy mortgage?
Right to Buy mortgages are obtained after living in a property under a housing association or the local council for three years or more. The idea behind a Right to Buy is that after a period of renting the property you have the option to purchase it at a discounted price.
The way in which the mortgage works means you are already getting a discounted price so will not need a deposit; however, it can be useful to provide one. If you do have the revenue to provide a deposit it can help towards getting you even better rates as you will take a sum off of the mortgage loan amount.
If you do have Adverse Credit and want to buy your home, it can be worth providing a deposit just to show your commitment to purchasing the property. Make sure to speak to your housing association or council for more details on what your options are in terms of purchasing your home.
