Buying your home

The Right to Buy scheme allows tenants of council owned flats and houses to buy their homes at a discount to the full market value. The discount is based on the number of years spent as a public sector tenant.

  • The maximum discount is currently £102,400

You will be taking on new responsibilities as owner including the maintenance and repair of your home. View the right to buy website to check your eligibility.

The Money Helper website provides financial advice and a mortgage payment calculator can help you work out how much you will be paying should you decide to take on a mortgage.
