If you've been a secure tenant for three or more years, you are eligible for the Right to Buy (RTB) scheme. The three years or more do not have to be in a Lambeth Council home, they can be with another council or with other public sector landlords.
You do not qualify for the RTB scheme if you:
- live in sheltered housing for the elderly, the disabled or people with mental health problems
- live in a property that is particularly suitable for the elderly and was let to be lived in by someone aged 60 or more
- work for Lambeth Council and your home is part of your conditions of service (this only applies in some cases)
- are an introductory tenant.
You can quickly check your eligibility on the Right to Buy website.
