Unfortunately, from what you’ve told us, you are not eligible for the Voluntary Right to Buy scheme and will not be able to apply to buy your home.

Here’s some guidance on meeting the eligibility criteria:

In rent arrears? If you are in rent arrears, then you will need to pay these off in full in order to be eligible for Voluntary Right to Buy. You can do this quickly and easily by calling up our Customer Service Centre, or logging in to your My Account.

Not named on the property? If you are applying and you are not named on the property, you may be able to get your name added to the property, and then you will need to prove that you have lived at the property as your only home for at least 12 months before you can join the purchase.

Eligible for Preserved Right to Buy or Statuary Right to Buy? If you are eligible for either PRTB or SRTB, you may be eligible to buy your home under those schemes. You can find out more here.

If you are not happy with this decision, you can contact our Customer Services Centre who will be able to help.
