Labour’s new parliamentary candidate for Loughborough, Nottingham- based barrister Stuart Brady, has already made it clear that he is opposed to the ‘right to buy’. The Right to Buy scheme helps eligible council and housing association tenants in England to buy their home with a discount of up to £78,600. Under the scheme, you can buy your own home at a price lower than the full market value. This is because the length of time you’ve spent as a tenant entitles you to a discount. The right to buy is available to secure tenants of local authorities and non-charitable housing associations and to assure tenants of registered providers (housing associations) who have moved with their homes from a local authority to a housing association as part of a stock transfer. Brady’s opposition to right to buy has been condemned by local councillor Ted Parton who represents both Southfields and Shelthorpe on Leicestershire County Council. Ted’s division includes the large Shelthorpe estate. “A lot of my residents in Shelthorpe have already benefited from the right to buy and many still aspire to buy their own homes”, said Ted. “It does seem hypocritical that a wealthy barrister living in a £450,000 four-bedroomed home in a leafy Nottinghamshire village should seek to tell his prospective voters in Loughborough that they should forever be forced to rely upon renting a state- owned house”.
