If you have been a council tenant for more than 3 years, or were living in your home when the council transferred it to another landlord, you may be eligible to buy your home at a discount under the Right to Buy scheme.
The Government’s official Right to Buy Agent service is here to help council and housing association tenants like you who are interested in understanding and taking up your Right to Buy your home.
The service offers free and impartial advice on Right to Buy and, if you decide home ownership is the right choice for you, our advisers can also help you through the process of buying your home.
Our advisers can help you with:
- Finding out if you are eligible
- Working out your discount
- Looking at your funding choices
- Guidance about the costs involved and whether you can afford it long term
- Completing your application form
- Discussing your application with your landlord, and dealing with delays
- Finding a solicitor
Helping you make the right choice
Whether you would like help in understanding your eligibility, the level of discount you could get, or guidance on affordability and working out the costs involved, our advisers are here to help. They can also guide you through filling out your application and can provide practical information on taking those next steps, for example organising a mortgage, finding a solicitor or arranging a survey.
Our advisers are available Monday to Friday, 8am until 6pm. You can call, email, or chat online with them.
