If you are a former tenant of Sevenoaks District Council, who transferred to the newly formed West Kent Housing Association on 23 March 1989, you have an assured/protected tenancy and so may have the 'Right to Buy' your home.
If you're an assured/protected tenant, you have the right to buy the freehold of a house, or the leasehold if you live in a flat, provided:
- the home transferred from Sevenoaks District Council on the 23 March 1989
- West Kent owns the freehold
- it is your only or principal home.
The Right to Buy is not means tested so your financial circumstances are not taken into account. Tenants receiving income support or housing benefit may also apply to buy.
If you're interested in buying the home you rent from us contact us.
