Right to buy your council home

In this section

  3. Buying a council flat

If you are a council tenant you may have the right to buy your home at a discount.

Your property is valued at the market value based on the date of your application. A discount will be applied depending on the length of your tenancy.

We recommend you take independent legal advice and read the information on GOV.UK

You must also make sure you have the money needed to buy and maintain the property.

You have the right to buy your property if you:

  • hold a secure tenancy
  • have been a council tenant for at least three years 

If you have been a council tenant or tenant of a social landlord before, in another property, we will take this into account.
