Buying your council home

Council tenants usually have the right to buy their homes.

 You can apply to buy your council home if:

  • it is your principal and primary residence
  • it is self-contained
  • you are a secure tenant
  • you have had a public sector landlord (e.g. a council, housing association or NHS trust) for three years - it does not have to be three years in a row.

Are you eligible for Right to Buy?

Check the official Government Right to Buy website to see if you are eligible and find out more.

Financial advice

Buying your home is a big financial decision so take time to consider whether it is the right choice for you. You will be taking on new responsibilities as owner including the maintenance and repair of your home.

The Money Advice Service provides helpful 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.
