Right to Buy joint application sole occupier

Our standard acceptability

Not Acceptable

Criteria definition:

Indicates if we accept Right to Buy cases can we accept a joint application for a Right to Buy application where only one borrower will reside at the property. For example, John wishes to purchase his council home that he has the right to buy on but cannot afford it on his current income. His son has offered to help but has his own separate living arrangements independent from his father. They therefore need to find a lender that would accept a joint application with only one occupier.

Policy Notes:

These are not acceptable.
