My Tenancy
right to buy

Right to Buy

The Right to Buy scheme applies to most of the flats and houses we own. If you were a secure tenant on 5th December 2005, you are more than likely to eligible for the Right to Buy Scheme.

The amount of discount depends on how long you have been a tenant. The longer your tenancy, the greater the discount you will receive up to a maximum limit which varies depending on where you live.

If you became a tenant after 5th December 2005, and have had your tenancy for three years you could be eligible to apply through the Right to Acquire scheme. The amount of discount you receive is a fixed amount published by the government, regardless of how long you have been a tenant.

If you would like to apply for a Right to Buy or Right to Acquire, please contact the Commercial Services team on 0151 510 5177 or email

We will ask you to complete the relevant forms, and then we will appoint a Valuer to assess the market value of your home. We will then make you an offer based on the market value, taking in to account any discount that you are entitled to, and ask you within the following 12 weeks to decide whether to proceed, cancel or appeal against the valuation.
