Deadline approaching for Right to Buy

Caerphilly County Borough Council is reminding tenants that the deadline is approaching for the ‘Right to Buy’ their home.

The Right to Buy and Right to Acquire will end for all council and housing association tenants in Wales on 26th January 2019.  The Abolition of the Right to Buy and Associated Rights (Wales) Bill received Royal Ascent and became an Act of the Welsh Assembly on 24th January 2018.

Qualifying secure tenants are entitled to buy their home if they have been a public sector tenant for five years. This period may also include time spent in certain accommodation provided by the armed forces.

The council is advising tenants that, if they are eligible to purchase their homes, they will need to submit their application by 25th January 2019.  Any applications made after this date will not be accepted.

More information about the Right to Buy can be found on the council’s website at

Tenants can also find out if they’re eligible for the Right to Buy their home by calling the council on 01443 864221 or by emailing
