Buy your council home

Right to buy

If you're a secure council tenant you may have the right to buy your home. This does not apply if you live in sheltered housing.

Find out if you qualify on the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) website.

Read the Right to Buy guide on GOV.UK.

Then, if you are keen on buying your home, contact our Development and Home Ownership Team for further information.

May 2015 update: The Right to Buy process, for tenants who have reached the legal stage, is taking longer than usual. There is a delay in sending out draft documentation to tenants' solicitors. This is due to a delay in drawing up the plan of the right to buy property. We are taking steps to resolve this.
