2. Speak with your landlord
Once you’re sure you can afford the costs of owning the property you’re renting, get in touch with your landlord. If you have a private landlord, simply ask if they have any future plans to sell the property and express your interest in buying if they do.
If the house you rent is managed by a company, you might want to ask for a face-to-face meeting. If you get a positive response, it may be time to explore your options on the mortgages market. Your next step could then be to secure a decision in principle on a mortgage.
