If you're a council or housing association tenant, you can buy your own home at a discounted rate through Right to Buy. 

The scheme allows you to get up to £112,800 (£84,600 outside London) off the market value of your home.

Please note:

As of Wednesday 6 April 2022, the maximum discount for Right to Buy will be:

These discounts will apply to applications which are served on the landlord by the tenant on or after 6 April 2022.

Do I qualify for Right to Buy?

You’ll need to have been a council or housing association tenant for at least three years.

However, we can also consider time you spent as a tenant of another council, or housing association as a secure tenant.

Up to three family members who've been living with you for at least 12 months can join your Right to Buy application.
