What is Right to Buy?

The Right to Buy scheme helps eligible council and housing association tenants in England to buy their home, the government's website is a great place to start to find out more about the process and how it works.

You may be able to buy your home from social landlords like us through Right to Buy if you have a 'protected assured tenancy' with us.

You are likely to have a protected assured tenancy if you were a tenant of Rochester Upon Medway City Council (now Medway Council) when their houses were sold to us in 1990.


First you'll need to check if you're eligible to buy your home

To be able to buy your home, you have to meet certain criteria and some homes might not qualify. If you're eligible you may be able to buy your home for less than its full market value.

There's plenty of free information, advice, help and support on the Right to Buy website where you can find out more about buying your home, whether it's right for you and check if you're eligible.

What if i'm eligible to buy my home

If you're eligible to buy your home and have decided that buying is right for you, you'll need to fill in an application form. You can do this by creating your application online or download a blank form

For both forms you'll need to print the form, sign it in all relevant sections and bring it to our offices or send it by recorded delivery to us. Please keep a copy of the completed form for your records.
