Right to Buy
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.
We are very concerned that tenants don't always get good advice when they ask companies or individuals for help in buying their homes.
Sometimes tenants pay a lot of money for things that the council will do for free. For example, Right to Buy application forms are available free of charge and help can be provided to complete them. If you're approached by a person or company offering to help you to buy your council home, find out what's in it for them and talk to our Home Sales Team before agreeing to anything.
