Right to buy your home

Property value and affordability

It is a good idea to find out how much your home might be worth before you buy so you can plan ahead.

You don’t need to apply to the Right to Buy scheme just to get your property valued. You can:

  • Get a free online valuation from the Right to Buy website 
  • Ask a local high street estate agent to value your property.

Can you afford it?

Before you think about buying your property it is a good idea to think about the costs involved. There are other one-off costs besides paying for the value of your property, including:

  • Stamp duty
  • Surveys
  • Solicitors fees.
