Overview

If you’re a leaseholder, you can sell your home at any time. This is called “assigning the lease”.

If you bought your home under the Right to Buy scheme and you sell it within five years, you’ll have to pay back some or all of the discount you got.

If you bought your home under the Right to Buy scheme and you want to sell it within 10 years, you must offer to it to the council to buy first.
