Thank you

Thank you for completing this form. The Estate Regeneration Team will be in touch with your shortly. For your information, the stages that we will follow are summarised as follows:

  • Expression of interest form completed
  • The council agrees to purchase the property
  • A valuation is carried out to the property by a surveyor
  • Valuation agreed with homeowner – via homeowner’s surveyor if required
  • The council makes a formal offer to the homeowner
  • Homeowner confirms acceptance of offer in writing
  • The council carries out relevant checks to the lease/due diligence
  • The council appoints a lawyer to carry out the legal aspects of the purchase
  • The homeowner appoints their legal representative to work with the council’s legal representative and both sides develop the contractual conditions.
  • Lambeth’s Home Ownership Services determine any outstanding amount (capital works/service charges etc. on the account which forms part of the contract)
  • Both parties exchange agreed contracts, including vacant possession date

Both parties agree a completion date for transfer of funds and vacant possession. This process can take from 3 to 6 months to complete, however we can not guarantee any timeframe; it will largely depend on your own circumstances. In addition we would not expect to complete any purchase before the end of December 2015.
