Valuation Office Scam

Be cautious about people claiming to be from the Valuation Office advising they can reduce your Council Tax band for a fee. Please refrain from disclosing personal information such as bank details

Buy your council house

The Right to Buy scheme allows most council tenants to buy their council home at a discount. 

You have the right to buy your council home if: 

  • it’s your only or main home
  • it’s self-contained
  • you’re a secure tenant
  • you’ve had a public sector landlord (eg a council, housing association or NHS trust) for 3 years - it doesn’t have to be 3 years in a row
