It proved a particular success back then; today the Right to Buy scheme remains popular, not least because the buyers can enjoy significant discounts when purchasing their home.

Buy & Sell
Tenants who want to exercise their Right to Buy must, for example, have been living in the property for 12 months or more, been a council tenant for at least five years in total, and to have lived in properties provided by a housing association, the armed services or a public body.
You may have a partner or family member who wishes to buy a home with you. Under the Right to Buy scheme, a joint application is possible if they too fulfil the eligibility criteria.
Once your eligibility is confirmed, the next step is to find out how much discount you may be entitled to.
The Right to Buy discount is based on a number of factors, including who long you have lived there, where your property is located and what type of property it is.
The Right to Buy process can seem daunting, but because Browell Smith & Co has a wealth of experience in this area, you can trust us to help you achieve your goal.
We will advise you every step of the way, providing no-nonsense advice and professional support throughout and all at a price to suit your budget.
