Buying Your Home
If you have been a tenant for 2 years or more, or 5 years if your tenancy started after 25th January 2005, you probably have the right to buy your home. You will also get a discount on the purchase price, depending on the length of your tenancy.
However there are exceptions. You would not normally have the right to buy your home where:
- we have a suspended possession order on your home; or
- you live in a sheltered housing scheme; or
- you live in elderly persons accommodation.
