Buying your home

Right to acquire

Right to acquire gives you the right to buy your home at a set discount. The money from the sale is invested into new social housing. You'll still need to pay us a service charge on the property.

To be eligible you must:

  • Live in a property that has been built or bought by a Housing Association using social housing grant funding after 31st March 1997
  • Have been the tenant of a social landlord for at least 2 years - or 5 years if you moved in after January 2005
  • Not live in a home in a 'Designated Protected Area' where the government has determined that social housing should remain as social housing in perpetuity.

Right to buy

A few customers have the right to buy their home under the conditions available to local authority tenants. You may be eligible for this if you are a secure tenant of a property managed by Cotman on behalf of Places for People Homes and took up your tenancy in the 1980s.
