What is the Right to Buy scheme?

The Right to Buy scheme helps eligible secure tenants of Local Authorities and Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) buy their own home.

As of 6 April 2022 you could receive a discount on the cost of buying your home of up to a maximum of £87,200 based on the amount of time that you have been a tenant. These discounts will apply to applications which are served by us from the tenant on or after 6 April 2022. The discounts do not apply retrospectively to applications made before 6 April 2022.

Any land let together with your home (for example, gardens and garages) will usually be treated as part of your home.
