Right to buy criteria

  • You must have a protected assured tenancy. You would have this if you had a home with your local authority and it was bought by L&Q through a stock transfer. Because you would have no choice in this transfer happening, your right to buy your local authority home is protected and L&Q must offer you this opportunity
  • You must have been a public sector tenant for at least three years
  • Your home is not about to be demolished. If you're not sure about this, check with L&Q
  • You don't have any legal problems with debt. For example, you're an undischarged bankrupt, have a bankruptcy petition pending against you or have obtained a debt relief order
  • You don't have any outstanding possession orders

If you can answer yes to the statements above then you probably qualify for right to buy, but check with your landlord to confirm this.
