Buying your home
Owning your home can be an exciting adventure that can offer security. As a tenant of Greenfields you may be eligible to buy your home through one of two schemes. Learn more below.
Eastlight Community Homes
On 1 July 2020, Greenfields Community Housing and Colne Housing merged to form Eastlight Community Homes.
If you are a Greenfields resident, please continue using your usual contact methods, as they continue to work. Your services, including those featured on this page, continue to be available.
How to buy your home
The schemes available to help you buy a home are called:
- Preserved Right to Buy
- Right to Acquire
As a new homeowner, you would have new responsibilities, such as:
- Monthly mortgage payments
- Building insurance
- Service charges
- Repairs or maintenance not covered by your insurance
- Water rates
- Council Tax and other utility services
- Optional mortgage insurance, so payments would be met if you became ill or unemployed
There would be some other costs to consider:
- Solicitors fees, for the purchase of your home
- Carrying out a survey
