  • You have been a public sector tenant for at least 5 years
  • You do not live in sheltered accommodation


There are certain limits to the amount of discount that can be made to the purchase price of your home.  These are:

  • cost floor - this allows the council to reduce the discount applied to reflect what they have spent on building, buying, repairing, or improving your home during the last 10-11 years before the tenant applies to buy
  • previous purchases - where a tenants has previously bought another council property, any discount that was awarded at that time will usually be deducted from the discount awarded when applying to buy again
