Right to Buy - home purchase scheme

You are here

Under the Right to Buy scheme, you can buy your home at a price lower than the full market value. This is because the length of time you have spent as a tenant entitles you to a discount. 

The Right to Buy scheme is only available to secure tenants.

Visit the Department for Communities and Local Government website for comprehensive information on the Right to Buy scheme.

If you are thinking of applying for your Right to Buy, you should get independent legal and financial advice about your individual circumstances and to help with the legal process of buying a home. You should also get independent financial advice about the different types of mortgage that are available.
