Buying your home

You may be able to buy the home you live in through the Right to Buy or Right to Acquire schemes.

You may be able to buy the home you live in, at a discount, through the government’s Right to Buy or Right to Acquire schemes.

This will depend on your tenancy and the type of property you live in, so it’s best to get in touch with us to find out whether you could be eligible. 

Right to Buy

The Right to Buy scheme allows council tenants to buy their home at a reduced price. You may be able to buy your home through this scheme if it was previously owned by the local authority before being transferred to us in 1995. 

Right to Acquire

The Right to Acquire scheme enables social housing tenants to buy their home from their landlord at a discount. 

You may be able to buy your home from us, providing:

  • you don’t live in sheltered housing or housing specifically for older or disabled people
  • you don’t have any possession orders against you because you breached your tenancy agreement
