Can I Buy My Home?

Under the Right to Buy scheme, most tenants have the legal right to buy their home. However, the following tenants are unable to buy their home: 

•    Tenants of sheltered housing schemes.
•    Tenants occupying some of our properties that are suitable for occupation by elderly or disabled tenants.
•    Non-secure tenants (generally those occupying properties on a temporary basis or those who have a broken court order).
•    Tenants of properties which the Council intends to demolish.
