Buying the home you rent

As a Southern Housing resident it may be possible to buy the home that you rent from us. 

Find out more about these schemes below:

  • Right to Buy
    This government scheme offers most council tenants and former council tenants, who are now housing association tenants, the chance to buy their home at a discount*. Read more.

  • Right to Shared Ownership
    Eligible residents will be able to buy an initial share of their home worth between 10% and 75% of its full market value, either in cash or through a mortgage, which can then be increased to 100% overtime through ‘staircasing’*. Read more.


* Please note: the eligibility criteria for each scheme may vary.
