Who qualifies for right to buy?
In order to qualify for the right to buy you simply need to have been a public sector tenant for three to five years. Importantly, you do not have to have been living in the same property for this whole period, nor does the period have to be continuous. So long as you have accrued the right number of years in public sector housing throughout your life, you will be eligible.
If you live in a council house (rather than a flat) and have done for three to five years, then you’ll get a 35% discount under the right to buy. This discount will go up by 1% each year until the maximum discounts mentioned above are met.
If you live in a flat, you’ll get a 50% discount if you’ve lived there for three to five years and then the discount will increase by 2% each year after that.
