Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Right to buy

Secure Housing Executive tenants have a right to buy the home they live in, as long as they and the property are eligible for the scheme.

The right to buy for housing association tenants ended on 28 August 2022. 

You can apply to buy your home if you've rented your home from the Housing Executive for the last five years.

You can sell a home you bought from the Housing Executive or a housing association. But, you might have to pay back your discount.
