Ever thought of buying your home?

Some residents of social housing have the ‘Right To Acquire’ their home. This means you may be able to buy your home at a discounted rate if you have been a tenant living in a housing association or council-owned house for more than three years.

What discount can I get through the Right To Acquire scheme?

This depends on the location of the property and its value. The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors will get a qualified surveyor to determine the discount you get.

It also depends on when your home was purchased or built and how it was funded. We will be able to tell you if you all of this qualify for the scheme.

At the moment, the discount available for our area is £10,000.

How do you apply to buy your home under the Right To Acquire scheme?

First of all, you need to get in touch to see if you are eligible. Contact us and we will check for you.

You can also find out more about the Right to Acquire scheme at the government website here.
