Can I Buy My Council House?
Over the years, the local Councils have sold off their properties to Housing Associations. These Housing Associations are regulated, and for the most part, nothing changed, it was a seamless change over.
While inflation and times are financially difficult, I have been approached and asked about people purchasing their home they let from a Housing Association.
In doing some research, some of these properties are being sold to the tenants very cheap. I know of one property valued at £95,000, being offered to sell for £28,000.
There are rules in place to make these purchases, you can read some of them here. But these rules are a bit vague. You need to contact your Housing Association to inquire in more detail.
You also need to be aware if you do purchase your home, you are then responsible for all repairs and maintenance.
