End of the Right to Buy in Wales

The right of council and housing association tenants to buy or acquire their home will end on 26 January 2019. The guide below explains what you need to know about the end of the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire and what you should do if you are thinking about applying to buy your local authority (council) or housing association home. The end of the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire will not affect your tenancy in any other way.

Other means of assistance to help you buy a home may be available. Talk to your landlord or visit the Welsh Government’s website for further information: www.gov.wales/topics/housing-and-regeneration/housingsupply/buying-and-selling/help-for-buying
