Right to Acquire

If you have a permanent Assured Tenancy with us, you may be able to buy your home under the Right to Acquire scheme at a discount.

The discount is a fixed amount, set by the Government, and it depends where you live. In the South West it ranges from £10,000-£13,500.

You must have rented your home from us, another housing association or a council for a total of at least five years, and your home must have been built or acquired with funding after 1 April 1997. Not sure if this is you? Please send us an email and we’ll be happy to help.

You may not be able buy your home under this scheme if your home is:

  • In a certain rural area
  • Tied accommodation
  • Specifically for older people, or a home that has been adapted.
