Buying Your Home

Right to buy

The Right to Buy scheme allows eligible secure council tenants in England to buy their home at a reduced cost. The discount will depend on the length of time you have been a tenant, the type of property and the value. Your discount will take into account the amount the Council has spent maintaining or building your home over the last 10 to 15 years. You will be required to clear any rent arrears before you can proceed with purchasing your home. 

Further information is available on the Right to Buy government website, you can email us on righttobuy@sholland.gov.uk or speak to a housing officer.
