The government’s Right to Buy scheme gives people the opportunity to buy their council home or housing association property at a price discounted below its market value. The maximum discount available to public-sector tenants in England is currently £84,600, rising to £112,800 for those living in London. The scheme works slightly differently in Wales and Northern Ireland, where the maximum discounts are £8,000 and £24,000 respectively.

Using our Right to Buy Discount Calculator, you can calculate what discount you could be entitled to when purchasing your public-sector property through the Right to Buy scheme.

How does the calculator work?

Our calculation is based on the current value of your home, the property type, and the number of years you have been a tenant. Your discount will vary depending on whether your property is a house or flat.

Houses – You could qualify for a 35% discount off the market value of your council house if you have been a public sector tenant for between three and five years. After five years, the discount goes up by 1% for every extra year you have been a tenant, up to a maximum discount of 70%.

Flats – You could qualify for a 50% discount off the market value of your council flat if you have been a public sector tenant for between three and five years. After five years, the discount goes up by 2% for every extra year you have been a tenant, up to a maximum discount of 70%.

For both houses and flats, the maximum discount is capped at £84,600 across England and £112,800 in London boroughs.
