If you are based in Leicester and living in a property owned by your local authority (that means your local council or housing association), you may have the opportunity to buy your home through use of a Right-to-Buy in Leicester.
The Right-to-Buy Scheme, providing you have the eligibility to do so, allows you to buy a property at a discounted price. This means that instead of paying a particular amount in rent to the owner for a property that isn’t yours, whilst the monthly mortgage payment may vary, you are able to truly call it home.
