Right to Buy
The Right to Buy scheme helps council and housing association tenants buy their home for a discounted price.
The biggest discount you can receive is £96,000 (excluding London).

Some homes cannot be bought under the Right to Buy scheme. They include:

We are responsible for making sure that public finances are collected and spent correctly.
