Buying your home

Any local estate agent can guide a potential home buyer through the process of finding and financing a new home. All of the local newspapers carry details of properties which are available to buy on a weekly basis.

A fuller explanation of what is involved in buying a home can be found in the booklet, ‘Thinking About Buying’, which is available free from the Scottish Government, telephone: 0131 244 2105, or can be downloaded from the Scottish Government’s website.

If you live in a Council house or rent from a Registered Social Landlord you may have the Right to Buy your home. Further information on Right to Buy is available under the external links section.
