The right to buy scheme was launched on the 3rd October 1980, it was originally introduced as an incentive scheme to encourage council tenants to purchase the home they are living in at a discounted rate.
More recently in 2015, this scheme was also extended to tenants of the housing association.
The scheme is available to tenants of 3 years or more (and this doesn’t have to be in a row).
Discounts are currently set at a maximum discount is £80,900 across England, except in London boroughs where it’s £108,000
