Purchasing through Right to Buy

Purchasing through Right to Buy

Tenants who have transferred from St Edmundsbury Borough Council on 24th June 2002 and have remained a Havebury tenant since then, may be eligible for the Preserved Right to Buy scheme. 

This scheme gives tenants a right to purchase their property at a discount. This is based on the length of time they have lived in public sector housing. If your tenancy started after 24th June 2002, you will not qualify for the Preserved Right to Buy Scheme.

If you wish to make an application, please complete the RTB1 application form and Supplementary home purchase Questionnaire and return it to us at:

The Havebury Housing Partnership
Havebury House
Western Way
Bury St Edmunds
IP33 3SP

Are you living in a flat?

If your property is a flat it’s important to consider that you will be buying a lease for your flat. This means you will still be responsible for annual service charges payable to Havebury plus additional costs when Havebury carries out major repairs or improvements to the building or communal/shared areas. You will be liable for your own repairs and maintenance inside your flat. For further information please read through the Thinking of Buying your Council Flat booklet from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

If you are unsure of what you might be entitled to, please contact the Home Ownership Team on 0300 3300 900 who will be pleased to assist.
