Right to Acquire

  • Availability: England Only

If you’re a housing association tenant in England you could be eligible to buy the home you rent at a discount of between £9,000 and £16,000 on the price of your home. The amount of discount you’ll get depends on where you live.

You can apply to buy your housing association home if you’ve had a public sector landlord for 3 years.

If you’re a housing association tenant and you’re not eligible for this scheme, you might be eligible for the Preserved Right to Buy scheme or you can sign up to get the latest information on changes that could mean you will become eligible for the Right to Buy at some point in 2016.
