You may be entitled to a discount to enable you to buy your home for less than the open market value.

You can visit GOV.UK right to buy to find out more information.


You may be able to buy your home if:

  • it's your only or main home
  • it's self-contained
  • you're a secure tenant
  • you've had a public sector landlord (such as a council, housing association or NHS trust) for 3 years (it doesn't have to be 3 years in a row)

You can share the right to buy with up to 3 family members who are not joint tenants - as long as they have all lived with you for at least 12 months prior to submitting the right to buy application.
