Right To Buy home ownership scheme

Right To Buy application process

This page details the process to apply for a Right To Buy property.

We advise you to read the declarations before you sign them.

Book an appointment to complete the RTB application

You can book an appointment with us to complete the RTB application form and we'll also explain the process to you.

To book an appointment call the home ownership team.  

You will need to bring the following to appointment:

  • proof of your identity, eg passport
  • proof of your address, eg utility bill
  • proof of any previous tenancy held with another social landlord, such as any tenancy agreements, to accurately calculate your discount percentage allowance set by the government

You can either sign and submit your applications at the appointment or alternatively send them, with the additional documentation, by recorded delivery or by email.  

Declaration forms

The declaration forms must be completed by each RTB applicant to ensure they have not been bankrupted or had a bankruptcy petition pending against them and to confirm the property in question is the only or principal home throughout the duration of the RTB application. Please do not sign the declarations for the application process until you have read and understood them.

You may be prosecuted if you withhold information or give false or misleading information.
