Are you considering selling your home and renting it back again?

 

You will need to think very carefully before you make a decision to sell your property and rent it back again. Please seek independent financial advice before making any decision, as signing away your home may not be the best way of dealing with your financial problems.

 

It is unlikely that you would receive any help with your rent from the council for 5 years.

 

Please refer to this leaflet Advise for Homeowners on Sale and Rent Back Scheme which provides further information on this. You should check with the council to see if these conditions apply to you.

 

Please remember that unless you comply with the terms & conditions of your tenancy, you could be evicted.

 

Independent advice is available from-:

 

Citizens Advice Bureau - http:/www.citizensadvice.org.uk/

National Debtline - www.nationaldebtline.co.uk/
