You may be eligible if:
- you've had a public sector landlord (such as a council, housing association or NHS trust) for three years (it does not have to be three years in a row)
- it's your only or main home
- it's self-contained
- you're a council or housing association tenant
Buying your home is a big financial commitment. Check you can afford to buy your property before completing the application.
