Right to Buy and Acquire

If you have been a Trust tenant continuously since the stock transfer from Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) in 2006 then you probably qualify for the Right to Buy. If you are eligible you will be given a discount on the purchase price of up to £82,800 depending on how long you have been our tenant.

You are not entitled to the Right to Buy if you live in a bungalow and if you were over 60 when you started the tenancy.

If you are a tenant due to a mutual exchange or because you inherited the tenancy, please contact us.

If you became a Trust tenant since the stock transfer from Aylesbury Vale District Council (AVDC) in 2006 and if you have three or more years as a tenant in social housing (anywhere, not just with the Trust) then you probably qualify for the Right to Acquire. The Right to Acquire discount is a fixed £13,500.

Some rural areas are excluded from the Right to Acquire scheme. Please contact us if you want to be sure.
