Right to Buy additional lending above discounted price

Our standard acceptability

Not Acceptable

Criteria definition:

Indicates if we accept Right to Buy cases if we allow a borrower to borrow more than the discounted Right to Buy purchase price to cover other costs and home improvements. For example, John would like to purchase his council home he has been offered for £65,000 which is 100% of the discounted price (£100,000 less a £35,000 discount). He would also like to borrow an additional £5,000 to cover some legal costs and to put in a new kitchen. 

Policy Notes:

We will not lend more than the discounted purchase price.
