Right to Buy/Right to Acquire

Some of our properties here at Gateway were built after 31st March 1997, funded through a social housing grant provided by the Housing Corporation /local council. Or transferred from a local council after the 31st March 1997.

If you live in one of these properties, you could buy your home under the Government's Right to Acquire scheme. You will also be eligible for a discount of up to £16,000.

As long as you don't sell within five years, you won't have to pay any of it back.
