Right to Buy government announcement (June 2022)

The Right to Buy scheme is not currently open to all housing association customers.

However, in June 2022 the government announced potential changes to Right to Buy. They are now looking at how it can be extended to all housing association customers in the future.

We'll update you here when we understand how this announcement affects our customers.

What is Right to Buy?

If you rent an ex-council house with Home Group as a secure tenant or an assured tenant with a protected Right to Buy, then you may be able to buy your home at a discounted rate under the government’s Right to Buy scheme.

Who is Right to Buy for?

The scheme may apply to you if your home was owned and managed by a local council when your tenancy started and it was transferred to Home Group while you lived there. You also may be eligible if you’ve been renting your home from us since before 15th January 1989.

How much is the discount for Right to Buy?

The discount for Right to Buy can be sizeable - up to £96,010 to be exact (or up to £127,940 in London). But of course, this will depend on the number of years you’ve been living in your current home and whether it’s a flat or a house.
