Right To Buy
If you are a protected tenant, under the Right to Buy scheme you
may be able to buy your home at a price lower than the full market
value. This is because the length of time you have spent as a
tenant entitles you to a discount.
To qualify for the Right to Buy there are specific criteria that
must be met and some homes may be excluded. For more
information or to request the Right to Buy application form please
contact the customer contact centre on 0845 113 3000.
Shared Ownership and Affordable Homes In
Below are the two main organisations who offer Shared Ownership and
Affordable Homes in Kent and the South East. Shared Ownership
is a part rent, part buy scheme operated by housing associations
who will own part of your home until you can afford to buy their
share or wish to move.
As property prices continue to rise Housing associations and
local authorities in Kent are working together to offer a range of
affordable home ownership opportunities for people who cannot
afford to buy on the open market.

East of England if they cannot afford to buy or privately rent a
property. HomeBuy is targeted at groups such as public sector key
workers, people in council housing or housing association tenants
or those in priority need.
