Right to Buy

You may be able to buy the home you currently rent at a lower price than the full market value through the Right to Buy scheme.

If you are interested in buying your own home, then please speak to our Homeownership Team on 0800 916 1444 or 0300 123 3516. We recommend that you also seek independent legal and financial advice about your individual circumstances and to help with the legal process of buying a home. You should also seek independent financial advice about the different types of mortgage available.

Remember, buying your home is probably the biggest financial decision you will ever make – so take time to consider if it’s right for you.
