Tenant Rights and Information

Right to Buy and Property Deeds

If you have been a secure (or Fixed Term) tenant with Kettering Borough Council for at least three years you may be eligible to buy your council property, at a discounted price (up to a maximum discount of £82,800).

The amount of discount you receive will depend on;

  •  How long you have lived in the property
  • Any other tenancies you have held with a social landlord (council or housing asociation)
  • The type of property you live in (flat or house)

If you would like an application pack, or if you have any questions about this scheme, then please contact us on 01536 410333.

You can work out how much discount you might be eligible for using this Right to Buy calculator and download an application pack.

Deeds

Where a property has been sold under the Right to Buy scheme, the Council does not retain the title deeds.  If you have bought your property with a mortgage or loan, the deeds will be retained by your lender.

Your title deeds are important documents.  If you hold the deeds to your property yourself, you should ensure that they are kept in a secure place.
