Right to Buy your BCHG Home
*Current position since December 2015
You may be able to buy your BCHG home at a discount.
Existing residents have the right to buy if they have a secure tenancy granted before 15 January 1989. Please check your tenancy agreement and tenancy start date before contacting us. Information and details of how to apply can be found at righttobuy.gov.uk.
Assured tenants might be eligible for a less generous discount called the right to acquire if the BCHG property was built or bought by us after 31 March 1997 (and funded through a social housing grant provided by the Housing Corporation or local council). You may need to contact us to find out the build date by calling 0121 561 7934, and details information can be found at righttobuy.gov.uk.
As at December 2015 the Government’s announced extension of the right to buy is being piloted by some larger registered providers of social housing. To receive news and updates on the Government’s announced extension of the right to buy you can sign up here.
