Does anyone have experience of challenging the 20% discount repayment for Right to Buy terms with a local council in the final six months of the five year no move rule.

 

There is a proviso written in the contract that says in exceptional circumstances they will waive this.

Would anyone know what these exceptional circumstances might be, or if there has been a successful challenge.

 

I have been told it would be too costly to ask and I would be unsuccessful if I engaged a solicitor to do this hence my post to clarify this would be the case. Thanks in advance.

Hi

 

Welcome to CAG

 

As the Right to Buy is a Government Scheme it may be hard to challenge the 20% Discount you would have to pay back after selling your home.

I see no harm in you writing to the council yourself and asking if they would waive the 20% giving your reasons why they should.
