Notwithstanding the above, in general terms the threat of bankruptcy or indeed being made bankrupt does not preclude your right to buy a council property where you otherwise qualify. However, in practical terms, whilst it does not take away your right, if a mortgage is required to support the purchase, then any bankruptcy by either of the applicants is likely to make mortgage substantially more difficult and certainly more expensive to obtain. Accordingly, whilst bankruptcy may not provide a legal impediment to the right to buy, there may be financial impediment as a consequence of any bankruptcy
