Right To Acquire

Right to Acquire allows most housing association tenants to buy their homes at a discount. It means that you could buy the home you rent at a discount of between £9,000 and £16,000. You’re eligible to use Right to acquire if you’ve had a public sector landlord for at last 3 years. The discounts available under this scheme will depend on where the tenant lives.

What is the difference between the Right to Buy and the Right to Acquire?

The Right to Acquire is very similar to the Right to Buy. The only difference is that it applies to housing association tenants and the Right to Buy applies to council tenants. Right to Acquire is for people renting homes from housing associations.

  • you live in a housing association home
  • this home is your only or main home
  • your home must be a former council home transferred to a housing association after 31 March 1997 or your property must be built or bought by a housing association after 31 March 1997
